Editorial Reviews

Celebrity obsession leads a French teen to track down her favorite singer following a disastrous staged television encounter between the pair in the feature debut from director Emmanuelle Bercot. The music of pop superstar Lauren (Emmanuelle Seigner) has a profound effect on the quiet life of teen admirer Lucie (Isild Le Besco), but when Lauren suddenly appears on Lucie's doorstep as part of a promotional campaign, the starstruck teen is left reeling when her idol serenades her with a love song in front of millions of viewers. Determined to have a genuine encounter with her idol sans the media circus, Lucie subsequently sets out to locate Lauren and hoodwinks the singer's tough-as-nails production assistant (Noemie Lvovsky) into allowing her into the mixed-up megastar's luxury suite. After the pair bonds over Lauren's latest breakup, the singer agrees to take her fan in as a low-level errand girl. Now, as the disillusioned teen begins to see past the glamorous facade to discover that fame has little bearing over emotional instability, she gradually begins to realize that the celebrity world is much different than she ever imagined. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I loved the film---some great acting turns, especially by the young lady in the lead. I could feel the intensity of her emotion! It's been many years since I had a hopeless crush on a celebrity (and never to this degree), but I felt like I was going through this experience with Lucie, feeling her love, longing, pain, disappointment, and devotion.

That said, beware! This film is NOT widescreen, and the transfer is terrible, from a dirty and scratched film. Chopping the sides of the film off also cut off part of the burned-in subtitles. This wonderful film deserves a better presentation!

I'm no liitle girl, rather a 57 year old male -a physician and surgeon,
and I was very much impressed by this gem when it aired recently on Sundance. I was hoping to download its signature song here, "Je ne partirai pas ce soir" (unsuccessfully) when I came across the first and only review. It helps to know French, I suppose, but it is a fine film indeed and I enjoyed it immensely ... despite my age and sex.

Fascinating drama about a megastar pop singer and one of her obsessed fans. Casting is perfect in this film, Seigner and Le Besco are wonderful and really pull you into the drama. Definitely raw and challenging, but great cinema. There is a fairly important character decision that seemed a little surprising to me, one I've had a hard time accepting even on a second viewing. It provides the final drama, but it is the only flaw in an otherwise strong film.
