Great talents have produced a fun movie.
8 July 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

What an amazing list of people (Cocteau, Ibert, Ramon Novarro, Micheline Presle...Eve Francis)and if the film is not one of the peaks in their careers it's not a failure either.

This romp with a radio background fields it's stunner cast in glossy white décors. I particularly like the inventor of edible phonograph disks whose pistachio is his big hit.
