Documentary feature, 69 min

Production: MASKéNADA

In De Bopebistro Tour (aka Alehouse Rock) Yann accompanies singer-songwriter Serge Tonnar (also the director's brother), and his folk rock combo Legotrip, on their acoustic tour through the small rural cafés of the Luxembourgish countryside. More than a musical documentary it's also an ethnomusicological study of a local culture that's disappearing at the same pace as the memories of the old café owners. The stories that are being told in the songs are echoed by the stories told by the café owners themselves. A film about life and death, music, beer, brandy and dementia. To be consumed without moderation.
