Our producer is the Lord .
24 July 2015 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

In "souvenirs souvenirs"(1984) ,an ex-rock star ,coming back from the Algerian war,tries to relaunch his career.

Ariel Zeitoun carried on with a similar subject,but in a darker mood ,in his sophomore effort :Gerard Lanvin portrays a music manager who discovers two black musicians ,a sax and a guitarist/vocalist ;perhaps he dreams of another Ike and Tina Turner. Sam is a pure guy ,he works for the sake of art ,but he has forgotten that the others do not.

"Everybody's guilty,but the woman has to take it and love the pain away" Puppet desperately sings;and this brother-and-sister team is odd:Sam is often disconcerted by their attitude:they do not want to stay in France,they are not interested in being rich and famous,they only work when they are inspired by the Lord (the scene when Joe wants to erase the tapes is revealing).On the other hand,there's a short unexpected S/M scene and Joe's frustration leads to tragedy.

This is a genuine Film Noir of the eighties that should be rediscovered.

NB :Zeitoun and Lanvin teamed up again for the disastrous remake of "Angélique". Stick with "Saxo" .
