Julie (Pauline Etienne, Tokyo Fiancée – Festival 2015) has long lived between two precarious jobs. Everything changes when she thinks she’s got a permanent job in a luxury shoe factory. But a threatened relocation disrupts her dreams for stability. Should she protest alongside her work colleagues or keep a low profile? Julie doesn’t know which leg to stand on. When Samy (Olivier Chantreau also in Baden Baden), a truck driver as crafty as he is charming, lends his support, things change once again.
Auteur duo Calori and Testut call this film a ‘musical and social comedy’ and touch on serious societal issues whilst also entertaining with charming musical numbers. Put your feelings into music, sing your sorrows away, and stage your protest as a dance number!
Featuring songs composed by various popular French songwriters – Jeanne Cherhal, Albin de la Simone, Olivier Davaud, and Agnès Bihl. Full of charm and truth, this dazzling film follows in the line of director Jacques Demy, known for his comédies musicales such as The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
