La La Land isn’t the only retro movie musical worth making a song and dance about. To be sure, the continentals do things slightly differently. After last year’s well-received Belgian Rhapsody, here is another romantic musical comedy that addresses social issues. Inspired by the films of Jacques Demy and Stanley Donen, the whimsical Footnotes centers on Julie, a practical young woman whose dreams of financial stability are threatened when the luxury shoe factory where she has recently started working will be sold and the business moved off shore. Julie joins an intrepid group of female co-workers who decide to put their best foot forward and protest the proposed sale. In a fantastical song-and-dance number, they raid the factory archives and discover an old and elegant shoe model that they decide to revive to save the renowned brand and keep it in la belle France.—Palm Springs International Film Festival
