Big Blondes is a darkly comedic tour de force that probes our universal obsession with fame, taking a satiric yet chilling look at television stardom. Rewned singer Gloire Stella has mysteriously disappeared from the public eye. When a television documentary producer tries to track her down, Gloire goes on the run. From the cliffs of Brittany to the back alleys of Bombay, Big Blondes is a riotous, n-stop adventure for anyone who has ever wondered whether blondes really do have more fun.
