It is a film without language, no spoken word. Everything that is worth to be told is told with music and dance. We see the history of the 20th century France as the history of a dancing. Times change and the dance changes with time. So the problems that people face change. Decay of the aristocracy, German occupation, youth revolution of 68, racial conflicts - everything can be seen on this dancing floor as well as the love, aspirations, despair, hatred.
Release date: 21 December 1983

"11.4. 2011 This is Ettore Scola at his most original. There's no dialogue in the movie at all, but the director analyzes political and cultural atmosphere through music, dancing and feelings. Dialogue isn't needed, because music and dancing connects people, no matter what their nationality or native language is. "Le bal" starts from a Parisian club, and continues from the 1930's towards modern times. This is an incredibly beautiful film, full of heart and passion. It's true high quality enterta"
