Synopsis

Two friends, Jeanne and Johanna, are members of a rinky-dink orchestra, ''Les Sirènes'', playing the Decazeville region in everything from ballrooms to beauty pageants. While Jeanne is introverted and romantic, Johanna is outgoing and sensual. A talent competition in Toulouse catapults them to success thanks to a sound engineer's ruse: Johanna mimes on stage to a play-back of Jeanne's voice. The crowd go wild, a star is born. Johanna has it all: great presence, great voice. Gigs follow, and their ill-shared success proves devastating for our two heroines, who learn that in a society where appearances are all, there is one thing that cannot be bought: their friendship.

Subject

"This music is written and sung by Jeanne, the character I play, and not by me myself: Maïdi Roth, author, composer, and actress. The making of this album proved much more difficult than I'd imagined. To write "to order", based on a screenplay, avoiding all pleonasm between song lyrics and the plot of the film was already a new excercise for me. But to write and compose from the point of view of a character, to feel the words and the music as Jeanne would have, has more to do with schizophrenia than with style. I returned to the wellspring of teenage emotion for my inspiration." (Maïdi Roth)
