It's been a few years since I saw this on television (it was called "Alice on Stage" in English), but I remember it as being an enjoyably dreadful film about a young woman,Alice, the product of a one-night stand with a producer, and her efforts to become a dancer of sorts.

One of the film's motifs is a song called "Bouge" (move), that motivates young people to dance. I found this film a pleasant surprise, because though I was aware that French cinema embraced several genres, I did not know it could come up with an actual "trash masterpiece" on the same level as "Showgirls" and "The Other Side of Midnight."
