Fans of Eurovision have some good luck on their side as they may find the film making its rounds on the popular streaming platform, Netflix, in June. Will Ferrell’s fictionalized parody of the music competition will land in a few days on Netflix.
Well, there has been much hullabaloo about this very film, which traces a rather old concept. The success of this movie is questionable, given the fact that taking up such a topic in today’s world would lure viewers or not.
“The Eurovision Song Contest”
The Eurovision Song Contest, which is the main highlight of this particular film, will be explored in its depths. Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga has a star cast, which includes Ferrell and Rachel McAdams. They are portrayed as an Icelandic singing duo. In the movie, we will find this duo being the ultimate selection to represent their nation at the international event in 1972.
These two characters are the main characters of the movie, and the movie revolves around them. They are childhood friends, and when they get an opportunity to represent their country, they are taken by ultimate surprise.
Will A Music Competition Lure Viewers?
The reviews of Eurovision have not been satisfactory. Many are calling this film a celebration of male dynamism and dominance. The film is being called an insult to the female artist in the whole world. In the movie, we find the female lead, Sigrit’s aspirations, and goals being attached to her male counterpart.
Can’t she grow on her own? But unfortunately, we find her stuck with Lars, and both of them together are the Fire saga. But one high point of this movie is that it has spectacular scenes. The cinematography of the film is splendid. The stage shows with the lead singing, and the other dancing gives one the feeling of watching a concert for real.
