I saw this film yesterday and left the cinema absolutely delighted. Deneuve, Beart and Bernier created an amazing trio of different styles and personalities that sparkles with elegance, humor, and energy... though they don't always get on well - but let's not reveal too much and spoil the fun. Kad Merad is also absolutely wonderful as a devoted fan who spends all his time and energy on following - and somehow controlling - his favorite stars' lives, and forgets that he has a family to take care of... and his very own life to take care of, too. This film was a real pleasure to watch, and I think the soundtrack fit perfectly well. I do like most Hollywood productions, but it's great to watch a good European film once in a while, and this French comedy is definitely worth watching. Enjoy!
