Willing to become a movie -star ?
5 February 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Great film from a small country. Is it so difficult to become a movie star ? Is the American dream still existing ? Micheal BLANCO reveals all... A film that deserves all your attention ! Belgian transplant Michael Blanco didn't just move to Hollywood to act — he's burdened with movie star ambitions to become his country's successor to Jean Claude Van Damme. Problem is, Michael's short of stature, hair, and talent, with an accent that turns his monologues into mumbles. Writer/director Stephan Streker's muted and mesmerizing film stands apart from the Hollywood pack, revamping the streets of LA with an alien, dusty "glamor" that sustains Michael as he shuttles between failed auditions and menial jobs, never giving up his dreams of "super-stardom".
