Storyline

Two best friends, Johanna and Jeanne, live in the small town of Decazeville, a mining town in France. One year at the Miners' Ball, the music group The Sirens perform, of which Johanna and Jeanne are members. In a spontaneous moment, a new friend of Johanna's (named Luc) discovers Johanna and Jeanne's incredible musical talent and singing ability when they sing a duet together without musical accompaniment. The two girls begin practicing and recording in a studio together with the help of Luc and an arranger, Jasper, and finally manage to record a tape with a few songs. A co-worker of Jeanne's joins their team as Jasper's assistant. Just after Luc leaves for Paris to take the tape around to various record companies, the others spot posters for a music contest, but only single artists may enter, and Johanna is chosen by the group to enter. She appears on live TV and is an instant hit, but with only one problem: as she begins to perform before the cameras, Jasper cuts out her mike and ... Written by Heidi S.

Great Music, Great acting, Great movie!!
9 October 2001 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

This movie is really great, when you see it for the first time you can really feel the chill of the great live performances that appear on the film. I regret that I never saw it on its original version and instead on VHS.

Also the music on the film is really great; its mostly done by Maidi Roth which is supreme musician and as you can see through out the picture see also really nows how to act! Virgine Ledoyen also has a very interesting kind of auto-destructive character with the super-seductive touch that only she can give to the performance.

And at last but not least the plot is displayed in a very innovative way that makes a lot of people, that are so deep into "the rules of making a plot", say that the director was out of his mind, but if you like movies with a different non hollywoodesque perspective about the struggle for success of a rock band then you have to watch this film!
