Spirited and eccentric, Waiting for Bojangles is a passionate love story adapted from Olivier Bourdeaut’s international bestselling novel of the same title.

Seen through the eyes of their son, Gary, Camille (Virginie Efira, Sybil, AF FFF20; Madeleine Collins, AF FFF22) and Georges (Romain Duris, Aznavour by Charles and Vernon Subutex, AF FFF20) dance to their favourite song Mr Bojangles in their magnificent Parisian flat. Their love is magical, dazzling, a perpetual party. At home, there is only room for pleasure, imagination and friends. Camille sets the tone, an unpredictable and extravagant will-o’-the-wisp, constantly drawing her family into a whirlwind of poetry, music and fantasy. One day however, she goes too far, obliging Georges and Gary to go to extreme lengths to avoid the inevitable, at all costs.

Waiting For Bojangles is a whimsical and melancholic tale of un amour fou, bright and tender, an enchanting film with elegant cinematography. Audiences should come prepared with tissues in hand. Efira and Duris craft exceptional performances, so intimate their love story feels like your own, making their inevitable heartbreak all the more tragic.
