  • A beguiling central performance and a near-numinous belief in the transformative power of music are the highlights of this modest yet perfectly formed French-language drama about the origins of synthesizer pop.

  • Ana's artistic journey is pure boilerplate; the same misunderstood game-changer schtick Hollywood routinely serves up from the likes of Step Up upwards.

  • It's clearly written by someone who knows more about programming than plotting.

  • It's a slender tale, but it has an airy French coolness that suits the electronic tunes that fill the soundtrack.

  • Driven by a great turn from Alma Jodorowsky, it celebrates the creation and possibilities of music through a distinctly female filter.

  • A slight but intelligent portrait of the women whose hard work and undeniable genius have played an integral part in the music we have today.
