Cover your ears and open your hearts to this brilliant French tragicomedy about society girl Marguerite Dumont (Catherine Frot) who managed to forge a successful singing career, despite a famously terrible singing voice. Set in Paris at the beginning of the Golden Twenties, the film follows Marguerite who has been living her passion in her own bubble, and the hypocrite audience, always coming in for a good laugh, acts as if she was the diva she believes she is. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. This gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husband’s reluctance, and with the help of a has-been divo, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers.
Please note, this film is in French with English subtitles.
