Yesterday, the movie "Tournée" by Mathieu Amalric won a Cannes Palme Award (best direction). It's the story of a french promoter that takes some of the greatest Burlesque performances all around France (with Dirty Martini, Mimi le Meaux, Kitten on the keys...)

Congratulations to them all.

When I first attended my first Burlesque event (the first Tease-o-Rama, New Orleans, 2001) I wondered how long it would take for some of those glamorous personalities, particularly Dirty Martini and Julie Atlas Muz to appear on the big-screen.

Kudos to the French movie industry for filming a neo-Burlesque themed movie (featuring U.S. stars) before Hollywood did.
