Since 1922, the Boulogne-Billancourt studios have hosted the greatest actors, directors, and technicians of French cinema and spawned numerous masterpieces. Gabin, Belmondo, Delon, Signoret, and De Funès, directed by Marcel Carné, Jacques Becker, or Gérard Oury: all have passed through these two major studios that became iconic in the French film world. But when television began to overtake cinema in the 90s, the studios were thrown into crisis. In almost a century of existence, the Boulogne-Billancourt studios played host to the biggest stars of their times and produced over 3,000 feature films. What has become of the legendary studios today? This trip behind the scenes of the studios — now entirely dedicated to productions for television — reveals a fascinating history.
