Storyline

Joachim, a former Parisian television producer had left everything behind - his children, friends, enemies, lovers and regrets - to start a new life in America. He comes back with a team of New burlesque strip-tease performers whom Joachim has fed fantasies of a tour of France, of Paris! Traveling from port to port, the curvaceous showgirls invent an extravagant fantasy world of warmth and hedonism, despite the constant round of impersonal hotels with their endless elevator music and the lack of money. The show gets an enthusiastic response from men and women alike. But their dream of a tour culminating in a last grand show in Paris goes up in smoke when Joachim is betrayed by an old friend and loses the theatre where they were due to perform. A quick return journey to the capital violently reopens old wounds... Written by Anonymous

Opaque, wistful, stubbornly Gallic road movie
10 December 2010 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

On Tour is a gloriously elusive film. Temperamentally it's as happy-go-lucky as the burlesque troupe, though a turbulent undercurrent of regret and self-doubt often blisters the surface.

This emotional perpetual-motion is probably the most consistent element of the film. The titillation of the performances rely on the fleeting moment, glimpses offered then cut off. Similarly the camera-work is invariably in some sort of motion, often hand-held, looking from a large number of different perspectives. The frame of shot and depth of field focus also act to beckon the imagination where the eye cannot go. Other characters along the way are fickle too - a gas station attendant, or a just- married couple who cannot sustain a fixed grin in the way the troupe girls can.

So it's a very adult film. The eddies of life's disappointments are the main tension of the film, its principal drama. Yet no-one tries to uncover another's source of disquiet. Everything is laid bare. A running joke is Joachim's irritance with piped music, the sonic junk that's designed to distract from the abyss (ironically, the one song escaping his censure, performed by one of the girls, is a typically introspective Radiohead song). There's no prying as to what's in that abyss, in the same way that there's no worthy-but-pointless digression concerning the size and shape of the women. Fury and tenderness blast out from unexpected moments but are then gone again with neither apology nor explanation. This is a true documentation of existential collateral: like the black dog with a lead in its mouth poised for a walk, occasionally barking for attention. I found it disarmingly real, charming, sexy, dry and without pity. 8/10
