Movie Info

Inspired by the films of Jacques Demy and Stanley Donen, FOOTNOTES is a whimsical and original musical comedy about Julie, a young woman struggling to make ends meet in France's radically changing economy. Living out of a backpack, Julie spends her days jumping from job to job until she's finally offered a temporary stockroom position at a women's luxury shoe factory. After making friends with the boss's spunky receptionist Sophie and the ever-charming factory truck driver Samy, Julie thinks the hard times are behind her. But Julie's dreams of stability collapse when management threatens to close down the factory. As her intrepid group of female colleagues get together to go on strike, Samy and the other truck drivers decide to side with the company's scheming CEO. Julie must choose whether to keep a low profile (and a shot at permanent employment) or to resist and fight back on the picket line.

Critic Reviews for Footnotes (Sur quel pied danser)

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

The performances, songs, and choreography are all charmingly low-key, giving the film a handmade quality that suggests pride in a job well done.

Yes, the whole thing is fantastical, a daydream of people triumphing over profits via brilliant PR, and love making a case for itself in the face of everything. But it's just believable enough to make at least some of us play along.

August 3, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

While Footnotes works up a certain provisional charm at moments, it's too determinedly low key as a whole to make a really memorable impression.

July 14, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

This feather-light French confection, written and directed by Paul Calori and Kostia Testut, addresses its dignity-of-work thesis with sweetness and heart.

July 14, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a sometimes impressive effort, but the homage often suggests a photocopy of a photocopy; the skeleton of the inspirational source remains, but the details are obscured.

Footnotes isn't perfect, but at least nobody lectured me about jazz.
