Someone posted a link to this on BollyWHAT, and I was completely enamoured. The description you posted makes me even more excited to see it (maybe on dvd). I love the whole "Umbrellas of Cherbourg" meets "West Side Story" with a bit of "Glee" and "Bollywood."

The French do have a very strong tradition of musical comedy, and I'm dying to see what Estrougo's film will bring to it.

Plus, the trailer looks absolutely smashing. And Cecile Cassel spoke so wonderfully of the experience of working on the film, too.

Sigh. I miss the ability to just walk into a theatre and see absolutely whatever I want.

I saw the poster when I went to the movie the other day but didn't think much of it. It's playing at the theater in town, I may go see it tomorrow afternoon.

Oh, I'd so love to know what you think -- what little I've heard after release suggests maybe it's flying under the radar or overshadowed by some much bigger releases, but it looks so interesting.

Lilibel

Now I have seen it I understand while it's definitly flying under the radar. Well, it's against Tron and Bieber in the cinemas so first reason here. Second : beyond the music, the singing, the pretty heroes and Paris, there is a strong strong social message that is showing step by step the fate of aliens, when they are found and sent back in their home country. More than a pretty movie, it's also a complete critic of our current government politics.
I enjoyed it very much and really recommends it if you manage to get your hand on a copy.

katherine

Yes, the social message comes through in the trailer, and especially in the director's message Estrougo wrote when the film went to the Rome festival.

Sounds like the film is right up my alley -- it'll likely turn up over here at some point, I hope, I'll totally be keeping my eye out for it.
