A shadow moves quickly between the roofs.
The "honest people" call him a hooligan, but girls and kids perceive him
as a hero, who knows how to keep the child’s open mindset.
"I'm the kid of the street and I hate traced paths!
I will follow my own path, a path of a bohemian!"
Paris and its bohemians...
In Paris, one can find many curious characters: Street artists living from day to day, poets humming the sadness of life, musicians singing forbidden loves.
All of them constitute the famous group of bohemians:
Thomas, the liar of Menilmontant, Guy of Pere Lachaise cemetery, Laurent, nicknamed The living encyclopedia of the Latin Quarter, and Michou the pirate from Quai de Grenelle.
Remi, known before as "Remi l’éclair (the thunder)" , used to be a rascal feared even by worst rascals. Many perceived him as the future godfather.
Not feeling to be typical honest guy, neither willing to cheat on the honest people,
he leaves the rascals and takes on a bohemian way of life.
King of tricks!
Since the childhood, Remi has been named the King of tricks.
Cheating backers and setting up a free all-you-can-eat pastries buffet, organizing a striptease considered a fashion show, and other tricks..
Even now, as a young adult, his sense of fun hasn't changed. Only the scale...
Before he used a wooden box to descend the stairs, now he is using a real car!
Remi hates above all to settle down in the society, obey the rules and living an average person’s life.
He wants to do only what he pleases.
He's an idealist.
But life is not so easy, and money problems soon show up.
Remi has to earn his living by doing small jobs; but not any small jobs!
Special jobs made for Remi, and by Remi such as matrimonial agency for puppies, improvising peep shows in apartments.... Remi never lacks of ideas!
RATS OF THE CAVES AND THE RAT OF THE HILL :
During a drive with Gaston in his small Messerschmitt, Remi has a fight with some “daddy's boys” from the rich neighborhood. Remi flashes on Mathilde, a girl from the group, and decides to follow them in the caves of Saint-Germain, their general quarter.
There, he has been offered a deal.
If Remi looses, he would have to pay all the fines the boys has received. But if he wins, he would have the honor to spend the night with her.
The challenge consists on stealing a mummy from the medical school, dressing it like a "king of Parisian night" and to place it at the highest point of the city, which is the top of the Eiffel tower...
DEAD TO THE TRAITOR !
Remi is working as a door-to-door salesman. But not just any salesman! He is selling lingerie for ladies!
At the same time, in the same neighborhood, lady underwears are increasingly stolen. Naturally, Remi is the first suspect.
Remi decides to stay in his "secret base", a place he used to hide in during his childhood. However, soon, his hideout is discovered...
Who's the talebearer!...
It's "Praying Mantis", a guy from Remi's group who turned out the bad way...
THE SUMMIT OF THE CHIEFS:
It's a big tradition on the Bastille Day:
All the "chiefs of the districts" get together on Parisian roofs, and decide the next "Chief of the Year".
Thomas, the liar of Menilmontant, Bifton of Montparnasse, Mandarine Zizi of Passy, and others are there...Without forgetting Remi la Boheme from Montmartre, who won, till now, every single year this famous title!
But this time, the others may not let him to win...
This charming town has been always seducing people from all over the world.. The glamorous Parisian women, gracious monuments such as the Eiffel tower and Arch of triumph, artists, wandering romantics...without forgetting our Parisian kid, Remi la Boheme!
