Watch Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris
- 1 hr 38 min
Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris was an Off-Broadway musical before it was made into a motion picture in 1975. It originated in Canada and is more of a musical revue about three characters and their various experiences. A cab driver, a woman shopping and a soldier meet in a theater only to realize that the puppets onstage are actually them, and the songs begin. Jacques Brel wrote the music and he actually appears in the film. Some of the songs are represented in a realistic mode while others take on a more otherworldly style.
