Storyline

Jean is a family man and factory worker who dreams of becoming a songwriter. Pinning his hopes on his teenage daughter, Marva, he takes her to singing contests in which the awkward and overweight girl struggles to belt out a tune. When Jean is suddenly fired because of cut backs, he is ashamed and even more desperate to have his daughter succeed. In a chance meeting Jean kidnaps the most famous pop star in the country and holds her hostage demanding to be heard by the music industry. Catching the attention of the media and the eyes of the nation, Jean and Marva realize that the show must go on until everyone is famous. Written by Sujit R. Varma

who's loving retro disco glam trash? we do!
17 July 2001 | by (zurich, switzerland) – See all my reviews

... but of course it's much more than that. it's a story about family, love, and the media. and even if you think this sounds pretty horrible, it must be said that all these topics are treated in a very unique way. everything's over the top, certainly, but one still believes the characters, their problems, the way things get out of control. even though the freddie mercury impersonator really must be from another planet... the whole design of the film might be reminiscent of movies like muriel's wedding (you know the deal: ugly people + glitter= everyone is special), but it still has a soul of its own.

8/10
