Crazy Horse. The name conjures images of the glamorous sexuality of Paris. Beautiful showgirls performing highly choreographed sequences that delight the adoring crowd.
And now we get a peek behind the scenes care of documentary “master” Frederick Wiseman (La Danse, Boxing Gym).
Wiseman spent ten weeks at the club and gives an all-access look at the legendary Parisian cabaret.
Crazy Horse…boasts the greatest and most chic nude dancing in the world. Founded in 1951, the club has become a Parisian nightlife “must” for any visitor, ranking alongside the Eiffel tower and the Louvre. Wiseman’s impeccable eye allows us to enter into this intriguing international temple of the Parisian club world and to discover what makes the Crazy Horse tick: elegance, perfectionism and a grueling schedule. The film follows the rehearsals, backstage preparations and performances for a new show, Désirs.
