French Cinema Review 

Synopsis

Muriel is the number one fan of French rock star and heart-throb Vincent Lacroix. So when Vincent accidentally kills his girlfriend, he knows there’s only one person he can trust to dispose of the body. Unfortunately, Muriel is also a compulsive liar. As the groupie and her idol try to stay ahead of a pair of squabbling detectives, the suspense builds and the plot twists in a film that is part comedy, part thriller and part exquisite study in manners.

Sandrine Kiberlain, who won the César Award for Best Actress in 2013 for 9 Month Stretch, is both hilarious and touching as Muriel, a woman who lies as easily as she breathes. Her performance underscores the film’s clever mix of hijinks and darker themes. Laurent Lafitte (Bright Days Ahead) is also perfectly cast as the straight-faced but manipulative rock star.

Actress-turned-director Jeanne Herry has crafted a very amusing and original film that is full of surprises and insights into the price of fame, the cost of “fandom” and unlikely alliances.
