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 Movie, Better Soundtrack
1 October 2001 | by (Ridgefield CT, US) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie years ago and still remember how great it is. I had heard the soundtrack before watching the movie and although I liked it, it wasn't until I watched the movie that the soundtrack got a whole new meaning. Besides the excellent soundtrack, performed and composed by Maïdi Roth for this film, the movie it self shows a phenomenal plot, a very interesting story and excellent performances by the actors. This truly is one of my favorite movies and I recommend it for everyone to watch. I just hope that soon there will be a DVD release of it in the US.
