Another yellow brick road..
6 January 2007
Charles Trenet sings four songs : the title track,"Vous êtes jolie" "il
pleut" and his celebrated "Quand Notre Coeur Fait Boum" .Plus a verse
from his "Je Chante " performed a Capella in the nature."Je chante" was
featured in the eponymous film released the same year.Needless to
say,the songs are the main reason why you would like to watch this .
'Je Chante" was a cock and bull story but it was a story."La Route
Enchantée" lacks any coherence;its three parts are like three sketches
,and the line which connects them is rather tenuous.
part one: the first scene takes place in a classroom where a maths
teacher gives a rough time to his students.This man is none other than
Charles 's father.We also make acquaintance with his kid brother and
his mother , a music teacher -not the same kind of music as
Trenet-Charles (like in "Je Chante") writes songs and dreams his life
part 2: Charles takes to the enchanted road (check the title) and gets
to a castle where a loony so called countess (Marguerite Morino) is
looking for a troubadour.
part3: Charles hit the big time and is now a big star.He performs
"Quand Notre Coeur Fait Boum" on stage , to his parent's great joy.
A film for Trenet's fans.The others had better choose Prévert's "Adieu
Leonard" ,probably Trenet's best part in the movies.
