In the predominantly male music industry of 1978 Paris, Ana uses new electronic machines to make herself heard. One day, she will create a new sound that will mark the story: one of the first pieces of electro pop.

    "A beguiling central performance and a near-numinous belief in the transformative power of music are the highlights of this modest yet perfectly formed French-language drama about the origins of synthesizer pop."
    Kevin Maher, Times (UK)
  • Highest Rating
    "Collin brings to the screen a different type of music film. One in which people do not sit behind a drum kit or at a piano bench, instead we watch a young woman tap on different machines."
    Carey-Ann Pawsey, Orca Sound
  • Highest Rating
    "Driven by a great turn from Alma Jodorowsky, it celebrates the creation and possibilities of music through a distinctly female filter."
    Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
