Muriel is a big talker. In fact, she makes stuff up all the time and always tells tall tales.
In first-time director Judith Herry’s tragi-comedy NUMBER ONE FAN, Sandrine Kiberlain (Life of Riley, Mademoiselle Chambon) stars as Muriel, a beautician who, for the past two decades, has been French crooner Vincent Lacroix’s (Laurent Lafitte: Bright Days Ahead) number one fan. She spends most of her free time keeping up with his new songs and his shows. Then one night, she opens her door to find Vincent – her idol – standing on her doorstep. His arrival turns Muriel’s life upside down as she embarks on a journey that even she could not have invented.
Filled with twists that keep the suspense high, NUMBER ONE FAN was the winner of the Ornano Prize at the 2014 Deauville American Film Festival. In the US, it closed the 2015 Focus on French Cinema Film Festival and is part of the official selection at this year’s Colcoa Film Festival in Los Angeles.
"An exceptionally well-polished French thriller." — Peter Debruge, Variety
