Victor Pivert, an irascible and rather unfriendly Frenchman, is obliged to rub shoulders with Jews and Muslims, not exactly his cup of tea...
"Les Aventures de Rabbi Jacob", one of the most famous French comedy films, is a joyful tale about tolerance and coexistence of different cultures.
You may have seen it a million times already, and still be willing to enjoy it.
Or, as an expat, you may want to discover this cornerstone of France's popular culture.
The film was shot in Protected content partly set in the Parisian area of 'Le Marais'. It features the mythical actor Louis de Funès, excellent in making fun of his fellow countrymen's flaws.

We could afterwards stroll through the Marais and visit rue des Rosiers, where part of the film's story is set.
