Directed by Dominique Deruddere
factory worker with dreams of becoming a songwriter pins his hopes on his
untalented teenage daughter. When she fails to achieve singing stardom, the
father turns to more drastic measures - kidnapping a pop star and demanding
to be heard. "With its likable blue-collar characters and its unpretentious
exuberance, Everybody's Famous is reminiscent of recent British
comedies like Brassed Off and The Full Monty" (A.O. Scott,
New York Times). Flemish with English subtitles. 97 minutes.
