France - 2022 - 77’
In “Bar Atlantic”, the owner Nathalie is at the center of the story. Here people sing, dance and hug each other. When their bar is threatened by the insatiable greed of gentrification, Nathalie and Jean-Jacques risk losing the place and their regular customers, the last shelter where they could find empathy and a sense of solidarity, where they could take care of their souls and bodies, worn out by work and life's problems. After the bar is put up for sale, Nathalie and the regulars face the end of their world and the loss of the place that, while toxic at times, is actually desperately needed by all of them.
