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

Belgian Road Movie
29 March 2001 | by (Amsterdam Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Iedereen beroemd' is a great movie about life's ambitions, ALTHOUGH being a Belgian makes it extra fun to watch, the general message is universal for all audiences. That the quality was observed by the selection committee for the Oscar of 'Best Foreign Film' surprised me a tiny bit.

Actors and actresses are a mix of Dutch and Belgian people, quite interesting.
