Souvenir Rated 12A


Dir. Bavo Defurne. Belgium/France, 2016. 1h 31m. French/subs. Starring Isabelle Huppert, Kévin Azaïs, Johan Leysen, Jan Hammenecker, Anne Brionne, Sophie Mousel.

A former Eurovision star, who now works in a pâté factory, plots a musical comeback with a young and handsome colleague as her manager. Pink Martini provide a great faux-Eurovision soundtrack for this kitsch musical romance.

’It's a measure of Isabelle Huppert's versatility that she can switch from her searing, Oscar-nominated performance as the rape victim in Paul Verhoeven's psychodrama Elle to playing a long-forgotten pop singer in this sweet-natured little fable.’ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

’It's a breezy romcom, full of gauzy romance, wish-fulfilment’ Nick Hasted, The Arts Desk
