After Woody Allen for « Midnight in Paris », French movie director André Téchiné was allowed to film within the Pavillons de Bercy for his last movie “Nos années folles”.
It is an adaptation of the essay written by Danièle Voldman and Fabrice Virgili La Garçonne et l’Assassin. Nos années folles tells the real story of Paul Grappe, a French soldier who, after deserting from the front during the first war world, hided with the help of his wife by dressing as a woman.
André Techiné’s film crew was welcomed at the Pavillons de Bercy in 2016 in one of its excpetionnal and unique venues: the Magic Mirror.
This circular travelling ballroom from 1924, with a mahogany dancefloor and embroidered pelmets, is among the 6 originals Magic Mirrors remaining in the world today.
The film was first presented during the Festival de Cannes in 2017 before being released in cinemas in September the same year.
