On Christmas Eve, when the whole of Paris walks, in the attic roll the ball. No food, no wood. Nevertheless, the artist and poet (Marcel and Rudolph) pretend to work hard. Entry into the world of the philosopher (Collen), as expected, ended in failure - the pawnshops are closed.
Bravo musician (Shonar) - appeared firewood, wine, pate and even cigars. You can live!
The song was spoiled by Mr. Benoit, the householder. Came for rent. Of course, left with nothing. And why does he need money? All go to the Latin Quarter, in a cafe, except Rudolph - you need to finish the article.
Knock on the door. Pretty stranger - it turns out, a neighbor. Name is Mimi. Went to ask for fire.
So begin ...
Parisian bohemia celebrates Christmas. Here, the whole company with Mimi. The former passion of Marcel Muzette appears accompanied by a wealthy gentleman named Alcindor.
Marcel is angry at Musetta. That - on him. The result is a stormy reconciliation and universal rejoicing. Alcindora - resign!
So having fun ...
Holidays are long gone. Leaving the dream of glory for a while, Marcel paints a squalid eatery on the outskirts of Paris. Them and feed with Musetta.
Rudolph showed up early in the morning. Behind him is Mimi. Again there was a fierce quarrel. Rudolph admits to Marcel that he himself provokes a break: Mimi is seriously ill, she should be treated, but he has not a centime. Maybe a rich fan ... Mimi is in despair, but he is doing well. Marcel and Musetta, too, everything was ruined.
So part ...
Friends are trying to work and live again. Fool around At the height of the fun, Musetta runs in - on the Mimi stairs. So weak that she can’t get up by herself. Friends put her to bed, rush to sell the last to get medicine, food, call the doctor.
