Nice, clean and simple plot, entertaining movie overall. Full of music, could easily be watched just for the soundtrack, a definite choice of the story writer who is no other than Alec R. Costandinos, once the king of the euro-disco sound in the 1970's, composer of many of Dalida's hits, and of some of the greatest euro-disco tracks of all time ("I've Found Love," "Romeo and Juliet", "Thank God It's Friday", etc).
His tracks having vanished since his last release "Americana" in 1981 just as disco was nearing its final days as a mass movement, Alec resurfaces in this 2000 movie. The dance scene will perhaps never see another music producer of such magnitude. Luckily we have his legacy to ponder.
