The 1980s were wonderful for French music
13 January 2014 | by nigel-houlgateSee all my reviews

The film is in French without foreign subtitles although you can read the French subtitles for the hard of hearing. The film is therefore difficult for non-French speakers. Is there anything of interest for people from a non-French background? Yes. The 1960s were a golden period for British music. The 1980s were a golden period for French music. Just like the British in the 1960s, the French moved from cover versions of American songs to producing their own original songs. If you want to hear this music, language is not a problem. You'll know if you like it or not. Here is some -François Feldman Rien Que Pour Toi. François is in the film. Julie Pietri Eva Lève Toi, mentioned and sung in the film. Lio Amoureux Solitaires. Lio is in the film. Desireless Voyage, Voyage,. Other examples, Hugues Hamilton Totalement Fou d'Elle, Elsa Jour De Neige, Corynne Charby Boule De Flipper, Lova Moor Et Je Danse, Niagara Tchiki Boum, Etienne Daho Tombé Pour la France/Epaule Tattoo. Now you know if you like 1980s French music.

In the film Back to the Beach Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon show that they can still have a good time even if they are over forty. Stars 80 is a bit like that but the events in Stars 80 actually happened, unlike the events in Back to the Beach. I recommend the film. There are two trailers, one with people singing around a piano. That is not the music of the 80s. Go to the other trailer, where the two concert organisers try to get a loan to finance their idea. A the end of the trailer Lio signs an autograph for someone who believes that she is Julie Pietri the singer of Eva Lève Toi. The stars laugh at themselves. I'd like to see a sequel.
