Storyline

Didier Travolta (Franck Dubosc) is a 40-year-old disco music fan who has no job, lives with his mother, and has a son he hasn't seen for a while in Britain. The mother of his son refuses to send him their son for the holidays unless he can offer him a real vacation, not just going to bars of the French port city of Le Havre. As the jobless Didier has no money, the only way he can see his son is by winning a dance contest organized by his friend Jackson (Gérard Depardieu), with the prize a vacation to Australia for two. Didier persuades his two former dancing buddies (Samuel Le Bihan and Abbes Zahmani) to get the once-famous "Bee Kings" group back on the dancefloor. Years have passed and they need a dance coach (Emmanuelle Béart) to get them ready for the competition. They soon find out that even if they once were the best, times have changed. Jobs, wives, love, ridiculous looks, old-fashioned clothes, talented contestants... Can they reclaim their past disco glory? Written by Anonymous

Nontraditional entrainment
9 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

The last movie I saw before Disco was Harry Potter IV, although it was entertaining, it failed in getting my attention, something that Disco accomplished surprisingly.

Disco is a different movie particularly in its development, which may feel odd when one is too tied to traditional movies. It has moments of comedy, but not enough to laugh, it has drama but not enough to connect the viewer with the characters. This is also reflected in its visuals; brilliants whites contrasting with intense colors. In the way that there is not predominance and everything is washed quickly, making the viewer feel intrigued for what will happen next.

If you are expecting a traditional comedy, you will be disappointed, however, if you don't expect nothing, you will be delighted for its original development and art direction.
