The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS/FILM - DC

Di­rected by Bavo De­furne. Star­ring Is­abelle Hup­pert, Kevin Azaïs

Lil­liane (Hup­pert), once the French rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the Euro­vi­sion Song Con­test, now works in a fac­tory plac­ing the fi­nal gar­nish on tureens of pâté. A nice young co-worker (Azaïs) recog­nises Lil­liane and in­vites her to sing at his box­ing club. New fame beck­ons. The plot is lu­di­crous, the mu­sic is aw­ful and – though it pains us to say it – Hup­pert’s voice isn’t up to the job. Oth­er­wise fine. Club, Triskel, Cork, 90 min
