Fiancés De La Tour Eiffel, Les

71 minutes, 1992

Brought together through their love of the theatre, seven mentally handicapped individuals take various paths in life. One works in a garage, another is a cook’s helper. One dreams of sharing an apartment with her best friend, one dreams of being loved by Tina; Anne-Marie and André dream about getting married. But recently, a major event makes their hearts beat as one: they will perform “Les Mariés de la Tour Eiffel” at the Festival européen des artistes handicapés mentaux [translation: European festival of artists with mental disabilities] in Figeac, France. This is a film about the mentally disabled living out their most extraordinary story, whether in the intimacy of a birthday meal or behind the footlights.
