With a central gimmick that inevitably recalls Alan Parker's 1976 “Bugsy Malone”, the Gallic Big City constitutes a French-language western populated largely by a cast of children. The story unfurls in the American Old West of the 1880s, where the town of the title strives for wealth and prosperity. When a number of adult immigrants are attacked by bellicose Indians, the children of the community find themselves alone (save one remaining grown-up, the town drunk) and promptly decide to take over the town. Djamel Bensalah directs. ~ Nathan Southern,
