Synopsis by Nathan Southern
A Quebecois by birth, the inventive and highly individualistic Franco-Canadian singer-songwriter Lynda Lemay first blossomed in the early 1990s, with her clever and witty melodic songs that observed the nuances of contemporary life. Such original numbers as "Ca m'Frout La Frousse," "Je M'Appelle Marguerite" and "J'Veux Pas d'Chien," all recorded in a distinctly jazz-pop style, helped turn Lemay into a national sensation. The musical performance film Lynda Lemay: 40/40 finds Lemay in concert, playing a live set before an enthusiastic audience on April 25th, 2007. It marked her 40th sold-out engagement for the 40-year-old chanteuse (hence the title) at Paris's famed Olympia venue.
