The Bolero Drummer

The Bolero Drummer

A Short film by Patrice Leconte

Produced by Lambart Productions

Production year : 1992

    Synopsis

    "Please, forgive me, but I hate Maurice Ravel's Bolero. That's the way it goes. But I can't help thinking with emotion of the man who, during fifteen minutes or so, with amazing application, gave the same repetitive beats to the drum in front of him, the Bolero Drummer. An unknown giant, he his the true hero of the century."
