Nour is a pleasant and funny person who works as an accountant at a fitness center in Paris. Everybody likes her, but she has no luck in her romantic endeavours because she is overweight with atypical looks. Her close friends try to give her advice, but they are not particularly successful in the love department either. Her mother and brother are also close, but they are of no help, rather the contrary. One day she witnesses a pole dancing class at her workplace, something that she would never dream of doing herself, but she sees how much the women in the class and their teacher are enjoying themselves, so she is tempted. Finally the teacher starts giving her private lessons since she is too ashamed of her body to do anything in public. Slowly but surely she gains confidence in herself and many things change in her life.

Loved this so much
22 March 2021 | by Golightly678See all my reviews

Went in with no expectations. I was pleasantly surprised. A wonderful movie that touches the heart of any woman who knows the awkward phase of life but this is about a later bloomer. I thoroughly enjoyed all the cast. The writing was beautifully done, directing made me feel like I was there watching. Very much enjoyed until the very end. The music in this is fantastic. I highly recommend watching this in French with subs. The English dubs were clunky and just terrible. That and a lot is lost without the main actresses voice.
