FULL SYNOPSIS

This French drama, adapted from the novel Playback by Didier Daeninckx, centers on small-town girl Johanna ([[Performer~P196708~Virginie Ledoyen~virginieledoyen]]) who dreams of becoming a rock star. Johanna and her shy friend Jeanne ([[Performer~P236456~Maidi Roth~maïdiroth]]) perform in a small mining town when Parisian Luc ([[Performer~P20756~Marc Duret~marcduret]]), on a visit to close the mine, catches their act. When Luc loses his job, he becomes their representative. At a talent show for solo performers, Jeanne sings backstage while Johanna lip-syncs onstage. Fame follows, but Johanna's promiscuous activities and drug use create frictions with her friends. As Pierre Montgolfier, a friend of Jeanne's mother, veteran performer [[Performer~P107833~Serge Reggiani~sergereggiani]] offers a rendition of the 1943 tune "Douce France." Shown at the 1997 Venice Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
