The Joy of Singing

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Secret service agents Muriel (Marina Fois) and Philippe (Lorant Deutsch) form an unlikely couple even before they are assigned to track down Constance (Jeanne Balibar), widow of a uranium trafficker and star pupil in a class for amateur opera singers. Muriel and Philippe enroll and discover their vocal chops, physical attraction, and the other students, who are also interested in what Constance may be concealing. Novelist and filmmaker Ilan Duran Cohen creates a delicious comedy thriller full of surprising characters and delightful and delirious plot twists.
