Film synopsis
Five unemployed penniless workers win 100,000 Francs with the national lottery. Instead of sharing the money, they buy a ruin and build an open-air cafe. But difficulties come to split their friendly group apart.

Starring Jean Gabin and Charles Vanel.

Made at the advent of the Popular Front, a left-leaning government, "la belle équipe" perfectly reflects its enthusiasm, hopes and disillusions. Jean Gabin was THE French actor of this era, the one who embodied almost everything the audience was dreaming of. "La belle équipe" is brimming with camaraderie, joie de vivre and vie en rose.
