Podium is a 2004 French comedy/fantasy film directed by Yann Moix starring Belgian actor Benoît Poelvoorde, Jean-Paul Rouve and Julie Depardieu.


Bernard Frédéric (Poelvoorde) is a mediocre bank executive, married and with a son. He used to have another profession: to be French star Claude François. Now, with the "Imitators Gala Night" coming up, he must choose between his wife or the only thing that makes him fully happy: the applause.
