Nominated for an Oscar last year, this gentle Belgian farce focuses on Jean (De Pauw), who’s determined to see his daughter, Marva (van der Gucht), parlay her singing talent into stardom. Trouble is, she’s pudgy and self-conscious. What’s a stage father to do? (Felony kidnapping, for starters.) Writer-director Dominique Deruddere maintains a light touch throughout this trifle, managing to keep all her characters lovable even when they’re acting despicable, all the while taking an affectionate poke at the moviegoer’s obsession with celebrity.
