This documentary illustrates the brightly coloured and social affairs that bring the ‘Sapeurs’ together. Their bold choice to live an unexpected lifestyle is a source of celebrated originality and positivity. Their life is not defined by occupation or wealth, but by respect, a moral code and an inspirational display of flair and creativity. The Sapeurs show us that whilst in life you cannot always choose your circumstances, you can always choose who you are.
Being a Sapeur is not about money. We borrow each others’ clothes because we always say, “it’s not about the cost of the suit that counts. It’s the worth of the man inside it.”
When there’s peace, there’s Sape. And when there’s peace, there’s life.
I definitely enjoyed briefly learning the story behind each man and the passion that ties them all together despite the different age gaps.
