    The opening scene of "Backstage" takes its cue from the final scene in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous", when the rock star makes a house call to a fan, and updates the crazy, single-minded intensity we see flickering across the happily anguished faces of the original Beatle fans as their heroes rocked the Ed Sullivan theater so many years ago.

Lucie(Islid Le Besco) loves the singer-songwriter Lauren Waks(Emmanuelle Seigner) a little too deeply. How do we know? "Backstage" also evokes Lars Von Trier's "Breaking the Waves" later in the narrative, as it dawns on the viewer that this film is a commentary on reality television, when the groupie's interactions with the singer and her close associates becomes increasingly unfilmable.

    With its booming soundtrack of songs -- written by Laurent Marimbert and sung by Seigner herself -- and good chemistry between Le Besco and Seigner, pic at times has an operatic emotional intensity that will turn off some viewers but provide a guilty pleasure for others.

    An enjoyably overwrought meditation on the consequences of celebrity and the vicissitudes of fandom, Backstage stars Le Besco as the schoolgirl acolyte of Emmanuelle Seigner's pop diva, a singer-songwriter and high priestess of cheese.
  3. As long as it focuses on its feverishly needy central characters, neither of whom you would ever want to have as a friend, it remains true to itself.
