Finally a movie about the life of Georges Brassens
Finally a movie about the life of Georges Brassens! Although his life is not a spectacle in itself, I found it quite interesting to know him better, to better understand the character. I sang and played almost all his songs in the 60s, without knowing that he was still living with Jeanne and Marcel, sharing their home. His poetry is carved with words so well chosen and so true, so simple behind the glare of their apparent literary sophistication, and blending such a mixture of the vulgar and the learned. He really was a special being, a rare poet, distant from show business, yet ultimately show business could not flee from him. The film did a great job, beautiful rendition too. And the episodes in the life of Jo which caused the source of some of his songs are a revelation, e.g. 'Une jolie vache (A pretty cow)', 'Un petit coin de parapluie (A little corner under an umbrella)' ... A must see. -
