Good things certainly do come in small packages!

This is a gem of a mini movie musical. Despite its short running time of 18 minutes, Stéphane Ly-Cuong, has managed to pack the movie with more fun and emotion than many directors achieve in full length features.

Without giving away the plot (and there definitely is one), the story concerns two gay men, one young, one older. It's the morning after a one night stand. During their conversation the older man transports them both back to a New Year's Eve party in 1979, at the height of the Disco craze. This sets the scene for a frenetic Disco musical number which is the focal point of the movie.

The film is touching, joyous, poignant, exhilarating and an absolute delight to watch. It is beautifully acted and well directed with some excellent, stylistic editing during the Disco number.

I only hope that the film (currently only available on PAL DVD) will be released in North America in NTSC format so it can reach a wider audience. The DVD also includes Ly-Cuong's earlier short film, "La Jeune Fille et la Tortue," a charming fable.

Hopefully this film will ultimately lead to a feature length film for Ly-Cuong. We haven't had a good, original French movie musical for a very long time, and Ly-Cuong could be just the director to rectify that.
