France just can't do it anymore ?
8 June 2006 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

I love "debut films" telling how somebody has passion, works and succeeds : stuff like Billy Elliot, Fame (great and underrated), Flashdance, Beat Streat (also great and underrated)... Some are light, some quite dark (Saturday Night Fever for instance). Most of them talk about music and dance (but Rocky is of the same kind no ?) How much of those movies exist ? hundreds maybe. One country (at least) seems totally unable to produce that kind of movies, and it is mine : France. I can tell titles : "Paroles et musique", "bouge!" and maybe the lamest of all, "Alive" (there is also "le defi", but to be honest I didn't watch it). All those movies talk about a show-business that never existed (that way) in this country : talent, work and struggle for art are not very french I guess. "Alive" is the story of a musical show (but there aren't much of that in France) director who lost his talent when his wife left him. He want to be back, even if his producer refuses to help him and even tries to stop him. The show is lame, the music is lame, maybe the only good point is that one or two singers are good (but not well exploited : the (now famous) talented Christophe Willem appears just a little as a guy called Henri who won't fit...). The editing is unprofessional, with a constant musical background (stop that radio), the romantic plot is ridiculous, all is too fast, and goes without any kind of tension, the audience stays out of that bad soda commercial. Maybe the worst movie I've watched on DVD this year.

If you look for a french "debut movie" that is worth watching, well there is one actually. It's "French Cancan", by Jean Renoir (1955). Cruel and fair.
