An absolute riot!
14 July 2002 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Jewish Lesbian folk singing tupperware dealer Phranc is a demi god amongst sellers of those strange plastic bowls. She is regularly acknowledged as one of the top sellers in the country and enjoys the perks that go with the trade. And she is good at what she does, combining music, infectious enthusiasm and a limitless supply of knowledge she consistently breaks her own sales records.

This documentary is an insightful, hilarious and just bloody fantastic look at an industry that is often the victim of derision and scorn; you might snigger at the sight of Phranc and her apron and catalogue, but you will be in no time flat complementing your supplies of Tupperware with some choice selections from her range.

It's a very upbeat documentary, only allowing a negative look when Phranc worries about the perception she puts forward - she is after all a six foot, crew cutted, man's suit wearing ball of energy - it can be very offputting to those not versed in the world of Phranc.

Easily the best thing I have seen at the festival so far; and darn it if people weren't offering to set up Tupperware parties straight afterwards.
