For Charles Trenet's fans
2 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

Even for people who are not exactly from his generation,Trenet commands respect.He was certainly fascinating and one of his songs , "la mer" (the sea) was translated into so many languages it became a perennial.

"Romance de Paris'" is a musical ,since Trenet sings five or six tune ,the title tune twice,the first time on the streets with three buskers ,and the second one as a grand finale on stage .The screenplay is not very interesting ;Edith Piaf's " étoile sans lumière" had a much better script and it predated that of "Singing in the rain" at that!

Trenet portrays a working class young man whose longing is to become a great singer.His mother (Sylvie ,in a part unworthy of the great thespian) does not want him to become an artist cause his father...And his sister has dangerous liaisons.And she cannot see the love and tenderness Trenet's pal (Jean Tissier) feels for her.And Trenet's girlfriend does not want to marry an artist!

As for Jean Boyer ,you'd better pick his "circonstances atténuantes" (1939) where Arletty and Michel Simon sang " Comme de Bien Entendu" ,except if you are a Trenet fan of course!
