French Cancan 法國艷舞
French Cancan

Henri Danglard, the proprietor of the fashionable (but bankrupt) cafe ‘Le Paravent Chinois’ featuring his mistress, belly dancer Lola, goes slumming in Montmartre (circa 1890) where the then-old-fashioned cancan is still danced. There, he conceives the idea of reviving the cancan as the feature of a new, more popular establishment... and meets Nini, a laundress and natural dancer, whom he hopes to star in his new show. But a tangled maze of jealousies intervenes...

亨利是「中國屏風」,一間時尚(但已破產)咖啡館的老板,肚皮舞孃露娜是他的情婦,在咖啡館駐場表演。破產後亨利搬到在當時是貧民窟的蒙馬特區(約1890 年),因該處仍然有人表演早已過時的肯肯舞。在那兒,他想到了一個令肯肯舞再度興起的方法,就是在一個新穎和大衆化的場所中專以肯肯舞作招來…… 還有他認識了有着驚人舞蹈天賦的洗衣婦妮妮,亨利有意讓妮妮擔任他新節目的主角。但卻想不到嫉妒會令人瘋狂……
