In 1914, a group of silent filmmakers are trying to put together a movie, shooting in the attic of café owner Félix Courage. Constantly struggling to have enough actors and to cobble the scenes together before time or money runs out, things are made even more difficult by the impending outbreak of World War One.
This play could have been fantastic, but it was too long and repetitive and it just got so incredibly boring that I really, really had to leave after two hours (meaning halfway through).
