"Play Ja Ja Ding Dong!"

Ok, ok...

But also, to celebrate the Eurovision Song Contest being held here in the UK, and in support of Ukraine, the history and legacy of not only the contest itself, but also Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.

Will Ferrell first saw the contest in 1999, and became a huge fan. It would take him over 20 years to bring a movie to the big screen, and it would be a movie endorsed by the European Broadcast Union. It had to balance a fine line between being an introduction to the competition for people who new nothing about the kitsch, campy song contest, and a love letter to its fans and participants.

No-one expected it to become Oscar-nominated, though...

I would love to hear your thoughts on Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga !
