Superstar (2012)

France 112m, Colour
Director: Xavier Giannoli; Cast: Kad Merad, Cécile De France, Louis-Do de Lencquesaing, Cédric Ben Abdallah

SuperstarA clever commentary on the power of social media and the meaning of fame, Superstar is an intriguingly dark social satire about a middle-aged “common man” named Martin Kazinski who, for no apparent reason, becomes an overnight celebrity. His fame, largely fuelled by social media, raises the question of why anyone would want to become famous. Seeking the help of a lawyer and a media agent, Martin initially wants to regain some sense of normalcy, at least until cracks appear in his 15 minutes of fame (Klaus Ming November 2015).
