Nico spends most of her time in the local club with her best friend Wanda (Zoé Miku). She is able to afford her extravagant life-style by maintaining an affair with the clubs' owner, Boris (Stefan Gubser). Wanda on the other hand couldn't be more different to Nico, stemming as she does, from a lower working class background. Wanda is determined to take advantage of her good looks to make as much money as possible. Nico is intelligent enough to see through her own superficial lifestyle, but too indecisive and unsure as to how to change it. One evening in Boris' club, she meets the front man of the Hip-Hop band «Menace Evasion». Paco (Carlos Leal) is critical towards his success, aware that his songs are being played in supermarkets but that no one cares to listen to his lyrics. Fascinated by Paco's provocative style Nico decides to confront him backstage and the two slowly fall in love with each other. Nico is impressed by Paco. A «rebel» who uses words like «message» without irony. ...
Nico (Julie Fournier) is a spoiled-but-troubled brat, and Swiss indie musician Paco (Carlos Leal) is her one chance to escape the world of wealthy weasels she has grown up in. Now this girl, why haven't I seen her before? Why isn't she on the covers of magazines? Maybe she is, but only in Switzerland? Either way, Julie Fournier is the most beautiful young actress I have seen in a long time, and, believe me, check out rising female stars is pretty much all I do. A good-looking girl makes for a good-looking movie: swimsuits, parties, dancing, all with a somewhat 1980s feel, down to the visual gadgetry: split screen, patchwork interlace, spaghetti preparation time-lapsed into a three-second sequence. The same goes for subject matter. It's all there, the coke and the rap and the booze and the pain. What you see is what you get, and it's watchable enough as it is, although there is probably a more substantial movie here, struggling to get out. Go see it if you liked "Tempo" (1996/II). Typical line: "I'm too cranked up on coke to get laid. Let's smoke some pot first."
