La Rançon De La Gloire (The Price Of Fame)
A small Swiss town in the late 1970s. Osman greets his friend Eddy, a 40-year-old small time Belgian crook, who is released from prison.
As Christmas arrives, their shared, grinding poverty has made Eddy quite bitter. Until Charlie Chaplin's death is announced on the television and the real extent of his fabulous wealth is revealed. Eddy starts to daydream and wonders what could happen if he stole the actor's corpse and demanded a ransom from the family. Loosely based on true events, THE PRICE OF FAME spins a web around the audacious concept of a resuscitated Chaplin; a Chaplin whose soul gradually possesses the minds of two misfits, until their journey becomes a tale worthy of the Little Tramp himself!
