For years the Jewish and gay communities have lived side by side in perfect harmony in the famous Parisian neighbourhood of Le Marais. This charming documentary brings the story of this special place – a mixture of London’s Golders Green and Soho, if you like – and its locals. They talk about what makes one a Jew (no consensus), co-existence and tolerance, and, you guessed it, food. A lovely (mental) journey across the English channel.
