Génial .... Fun movie stay in your seats till the end and SING
I watched this 18/10/12 " En Avant Première" aka a provincial Premiere, before the official launch nationwide in France, with French friends. We all enjoyed the movie and sang along to our hearts content. The salle/theatre was not packed but the age range of the audience was wide and everyone left with an excellent feel good factor. The artists seemed to have enjoyed themselves as much as the audience enjoyed their performance. It was great to see the original artists redo their 'hits'. As a bonus for me, I liked the astute use of the 'anglophone' sound tracks to link some scenes. It's a pity others who'll hear this music will not necessarily understand the lyrics and the excellent matching that was made. Good French music from the '80's with excellent comédie. If you speak French fine, if you speak English and French you'll understand why the lyrics are so important. Go and spend some time in '80's nostalgia.
