Can-Can archiveIn fin-desiecle Paris, the can-can has high-kicked its way into popular culture and Pistache, owner of the infamous Bal du Paradis, couldn't be happier. Judge Artistide Forestier, on the other hand, is not impressed. He is intent on closing all Parisian dance-halls and has set his sights firmly on the Bal du Paradis. But has he met his match in Pistache?
