blue queen

feminist justice

Told as a fast-and-glorious epic, Blue Queen brings to life the thrilling victory of a modern-day heroine. That of Nina, a young waitress who works in a tobacco bar in the suburbs of Paris (France). Her boss, Georges, has no good consideration for her and refuses to pay his employee. But Nina intends to reclaim her wages. At nightfall, thanks to the help of her partner-in-crime, Kevin, a failure with a big heart, she will take revenge as a reborn badass queen.

NTM - Pose Ton Gun

Pose Ton Gun (translated into English as Put Down Da Gun) was composed and performed by Supreme NTM, a prestigious French hip hop band formed in 1989 in Seine-Saint-Denis (Paris suburbs) by Joey Starr and Kool Shen. This track was a huge hit in the late 1990s. The honor is all the greater for me to have paid tribute to their talent through Blue Queen. Big thanks to these major artists for making such a courtesy donation to the film's soundtrack.
