Love Story trash, notably with Asia Argento and Bilal Hassani, ex-Eurovision candidate, Drama Queens is a queer musical fresco that sweeps away every part in its path. It is on no account a lesbian work, however reasonably a common romantic comedy, able to making spectators snigger and win hearts.

Passion between pop diva and punk icon

The story ? During an audition for a telecrochet, Mimi Madamou (Louiza Aura) and Billie Kohler (Gio Ventura) fall in love at first sight. Then begins an extended, tumultuous ardour between the pop diva and the punk icon, as instructed to us by a botoxed YouTuber known as Steevyshady. The latter is performed by Bilal Hassani who, in his first main position within the cinema, reveals himself hilariously as a pissed off fan, in search of the eye of others, through his publications on social networks.

We are immersed in a kitsch universe of saturated colours. The movie is carried by intoxicating songs – from the falsely candid anthem “Pastouche” to the Love Songtrash “I want to fist you to the core” (sic) – composed by Yelle and Rebeka Warrior (ex-member of Sexy Sushi ). The narrative could be very managed for a primary movie. There is, within the cinema of Alexis Langlois, an aesthetic bias as radical as it’s irresistible. As if Jacques Demy met Britney Spears in a punk bar. We love !

The Queens of Drama, by Alexis Langlois (Bac Films, 1h45), coming quickly.
