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) and promptly decide to take over the town. Djamel Bensalah directs. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
