"Quirky, appealing, and, in effect, Demys farewell to cinema."Time Out
(Trois places pour le 26). Demys last film is a retrospective, self-reflexive tribute to the romance of show business. Yves Montand stars as himself, returning to his hometown of Marseille to rehearse an autobiographical revue. When his costar abruptly quits, a new leading lady arrives in the form of a stagestruck gaminewho, unbeknownst to the characters themselves, may be Montands illegitimate daughter. In Demys particular brand of backstage musical, singing shopgirls in gaily colored dresses dream of instant stardom and get it, while the suggestion of incest is merely a complication en route to a happy ending. Michel Legrands music meets the MTV eighties in dance numbers by Michael Peters, choreographer for Michael Jackson.
