THE STORY: Enki Bilal, Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Sophie Marceau, Christian Slater, Johnny Hallyday… What began in the 19th century as the Hôtel de la Poste has since seen a very handsome crowd pass through its beautiful sheets… The Festival international du film fantastique de Gérardmer, which sends the town into a panic every winter, plays its role.
