Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), French ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Cast/Crew Interview(s), Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: Joachim, a former Parisian television producer had left everything behind - his children, friends, enemies, lovers and regrets - to start a new life in America. He comes back with a team of New Burlesque strip-tease performers whom Joachim has fed fantasies of a tour of France, of Paris! Traveling from port to port, the curvaceous showgirls invent an extravagant fantasy world of warmth and hedonism, despite the constant round of impersonal hotels with their endless elevator music and the lack of money. The show gets an enthusiastic response from men and women alike. But their dream of a tour culminating in a last grand show in Paris goes up in smoke when Joachim is betrayed by an old friend and loses the theatre where they were due to perform. A quick return journey to the capital violently reopens old wounds... SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Cannes Film Festival, ...On Tour ( Tournée )

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine burlesque art film. 19 April 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ballsy, burlesque, French cinema, with an American accent. Great performances, and a fine, almost veritee, glimpse into life behind the scenes of a touring burlesque troop in France. Great direction. Treat yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little gem 4 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
I wish I had stumbled across this marvellous little film flicking through the channels in the dead of night. But I'll settle for having taken a punt on the dvd. And this way I get to see it over and again!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring wandering trash 11 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
I waded through 20 minutes of this film and was bored stiff. The weedy chain smoking tour operator has a gaggle of girls he leads around never seeming sure if they have real performance dates or not. Once in a while there is a backstage scene where he looks only mildly pleased by the girl's performances and sometimes he's quite disparaging about their acts. Other times, he gets beaten up or thrown out by seedy older producers. The sound quality is awful. These are American girls touring in France and it's hard to distinguish which language they are using. A teenager with a video camera could make a more cohesive film. Don't buy this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars MATHIEU AMALRIC, OPUS 3 26 Nov 2011
By Daniel S. - Published on Amazon.com
Mathieu Amalric's look at the cabaret world described in Tournée is affectionate and so loving that you finally understand with him that his family is here. The mise-en-scene, awarded in Cannes, is superior. To be short, I loved this film. Masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Burlesque rules OK 11 Oct 2011
By Theodoros Natsinas - Published on Amazon.com
An uneven film; at times exhilarating, at other times exasperating. Reading comments and reviews about it, generally reactions are similarly opposed. The film has two sides: one presents the performances of the on-tour troupe of New Burlesque artistes; the second side follows the attempts of their manager/producer (Mathieu Amalric) to put his professional and personal life in some sort of order. The first side is presented in an almost documentary, non-directed, lively way while the second side is tightly organized, controlled, subdued. Generally, the Burlesque performances draw most of the admiring comments and they are really exquisite, amazing, awesome; especially for the uninitiated (like myself) to New Burlesque. The parts of the film that follow their manager are not very exciting, at times they can be annoying. I can see a point in the contrasting way they were filmed, suggested by Amalric's own comments that New Burlesque is about imperfection: the definitely not-perfect bodies of his troupe engaging in routines "traditionally" reserved for the most perfect (but not really human) ones. If these performances celebrate imperfection, the manager's tale is another side of imperfection: imperfection as tragedy.

The film is really very well crafted, photographed and directed (not surprisingly it received the 2010 Cannes award for best direction). The craft that went into the making of the film can be assessed by checking readily available (on the internet) videos of the performers' shows; it is astounding how much better they appear under Amalric's direction. The film is definitely worthwhile to check it out, even if only for the New Burlesque performances; but if you get into the story of the manager's plight as well, you will be engrossed.

The region 2 DVD that I checked out had excellent transfer quality. You can appreciate that if you see some suitable excerpts available on the internet. I didn't bother checking even if there were any extras, so I cannot comment on the overall value of the package.
