3 Dancing Slaves (French: Le Clan) is a 2004 French film directed by Gaël Morel.[2] [3]


Annecy is no tourist destination for three working-class brothers and their father, in the months after their mother has died. Marc (Nicolas Cazalé) is deeply troubled: he tries to stiff drug dealers and then plots revenge. Christophe (Stéphane Rideau) is released from jail, lands a job, and must overcome various temptations in order to keep it. Olivier (Thomas Dumerchez), nearing 18, may be falling in love with Hicham (Salim Kechiouche), a young man who constantly practices capoeira on the shores of the lake. Both violence and fraternity are close to the surface of most interactions. How each brother emerges from his challenge comprises the film's drama. The film discusses how these men can form a family.
