The Eighties = Les annees 80( Visual )

5 editions published between 1983 and 2012 in French and English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les Années 80 is kind of dress rehearsal for Ackerman's uncompleted musical film La Galerie. The first sixty minutes of Les Années 80 distils some forty hours of rehearsal tapes for La Galerie, with Ackerman leading a cast of sixty-four from auditions to script readings to recording sessions ; a twenty-minute Busby Berkeley finale represents one finished section of the full scaled musical, filmed on location at the Toison d'Or shopping mall in Brussels. Années 80 is actually a film "about" various things ranging from the nominal subject of the musical comedy -- the plight of women in love -- to the nature of musical comedy itself. Film critic Marcia Palley points out that "the celebration of detail and the rhythms of repetition in Les Années 80 allows the viewer to appreciate the final product -- the musical comedy -- with the benefit of one's reactions to all its ridiculous parts. The result is a wicked satire on the folly of l'amour, both in life and in the theater, all the more pointed for its seeming lightheartedness."
