Footloose (2011)

From 10 years old

No, this is not the 1984 film with Kevin Bacon but the remake released in 2011 with Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough and Dennis Quaid, which starts from the same premise: the hero arrives in a city and comes up against the moral conceptions of the community which prohibits its inhabitants from dancing. The soundtrack of this musical is resolutely country, with the resumption of the flagship title Footloose by Kenny Loggins by Blake Shelton. What make you want to put on your cowboy boots, cowboy hat, and take a few dance steps in your living room following the choreographies of the film. The final scene in the barn is full of winks at the first Footloose.

Dirty Dancing (1987)

Dirty Dancing is a film from the 80s that marked the history of cinema with its cult lines, its iconic scope (which we have all tried to make at least once) and its unforgettable titles. The Time of my life has also won several prizes: a Grammy, a Golden Globe and the Oscar for best song.

Save The Last Dance (2001)

This romantic comedy released in 2001 shows us how dance can be liberating. Julia Stiles plays a ballerina in the making who, after the death of her mother and a failed audition in Julliard, finds herself at her father’s in Chicago. This is where she will discover a whole new culture, especially hip-hop. With its successful soundtrack (Fredro Starr, Donell Jones, Q-Tip …) and its sets, Save The Last Dance offers us a successful dive in a disadvantaged American neighborhood, between traffic and settling of scores.

Annie (2014)

From 10 years old

The little orphan Annie got a makeover in 2014, in this remake worn by Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz and Quvenzhané Wallis. The latter, discovered in The Beasts of the Wild South, lends its features to the playful little girl who sings and dances to pass the time. She was then greeted by a businessman and candidate for municipal elections, to improve her image. Annie is an optimistic film that will make you smile during this period of confinement!

The Indian Family (2001)

This 3.5 hour film brings together the biggest stars of Indian cinema around a story of family, love and acceptance. We find Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor or Kajol. A must-see for anyone wishing to learn about Bollywood cinema. The dances and songs (such as Bole Chudiyan, You Are My Soniya, And Yeh Ladka Hai Allah) of The Indian Family will make you travel.

Mamma Mia! (2008)

When we talk about films that make you want to sing and dance, you immediately think of Mamma Mia, the musical that covers the biggest titles of the ABBA group. Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried or Pierce Brosnan take us under the Greek sun of Kalokairi to live a crazy adventure, feel-good, kitsch, and invigorating. So get your microphones!

The Trolls (2016)

From 6 years old

In this new iteration of the Trolls produced by Dreamworks, it is the singers Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick / Louane and M Pokora in French version, who interpret original songs. A colorful and delirious animated film which sees its characters leaving for a rescue mission under the sign of good humor and music. In particular, you can hear Timberlake’s catchy tube Can’t stop the feeling, which will make you want to wiggle on the floor of your living room.

Les Misérables (2013)

If you’re the old-fashioned musical genre, Les Misérables is for you. Otherwise, go your way. This US adaptation of the Broadway play, itself taken from the flagship work of Victor Hugo, immerses us in 19th century France through the story of the resilient Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) and transient lovers Colette (Amanda Seyfried ) and Marius (Eddie Redmayne). The film enabled Anne Hathaway to win the Oscar for best actress in a supporting role for her role as Fantine, whose interpretation of the title I dreamed a dream made an impression.

Pup Star – world tour (2018)

From 6 years old

There is something for everyone in this selection and we even think of children. If you want them to watch something other than Paw Patrol and Peppa Pig, Pup Star is for them! In this film for the whole family, dogs take part in a great song contest, like The Voice! Musical level, all countries are represented!

Been so long (2018)

Michaela Coel (Black Mirror, Chewing Gum) plays in this romantic comedy a single mother who falls in love with a handsome stranger with a heavy past. Been so long is interspersed with musical episodes sometimes interpreted by heroes, sometimes by secondary actors among whom we find a certain George MacKay (1917).
