Storyline

Fatal is now a huge star. Millions of fans, dozens of hits, 4 Music Music Awards of the best artist of the year, a clothing line, a magazine and soon opening its own amusement park: Fataland. It is the undisputed N ° 1. Apparently everything is going well - but in reality, Fatal no longer knows where he is going, because he no longer knows where he comes from: from his beginnings he makes believe that he grew up in the ghetto. When in fact he was born in a small village of Savoy, in the heart of the Alps. But we can not be a "gansta" when we are a son of shepherds of Savoy, then Fatal has preferred to hide its origins and forget its past . Written by OzzyPsycko

Better than you might think
18 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is actually a very entertaining and, if certainly not intellectual, then nevertheless still thought-provoking movie.

It is the story of a young man from the picturesque Haute Savoie region of southern France who passes himself off as a ghetto rocker/rapper, and builds a huge career as a flashy rapper. It's all fake, though, and that's what this movie is about: the superficiality of manufactured successes in modern pop music.

At one point, when Fatal's real story is exposed, there is a moment of truth telling: Fatal and his rival express their real feelings to their public. This could easily have become a made-for-TV mess at this point. But it doesn't, because it realizes that audiences don't really want sincerity, they just want the latest manufactured hype.

Not a great movie, certainly, but a very entertaining one with some intelligent ideas well worked out. An American version of this could be very entertaining as well, but I find it hard to believe an American producer would allow it to be this cynical about the nature of modern music audiences.
