Trivia

After a break-up with singer France Gall in 1967, he was very depressed. In order to help, Jacques Revaux, a friend of his, proposed him a little melody. With Revaux and Gilles Thibaut, he wrote the lyrics about a failing couple, destroyed by their usual life habits. It was titled "Comme d'habitude". A little time later, the song had an English version: "My Way". See more »

A mind blowing Biopic
17 March 2012 | by JosephAbraham21See all my reviews

Warning, English is not my birth language

Different than La mome or Gainsbourg, Cloclo is a great piece of filmmaking, well crafted , extremely well acted by Jeremie Renier and the bigger than life performance of Benoit Magimel in a small but vital role of Paul Ledermann, the Claude Francois's agent. The different periods and steps in the singer's and business man careers are all interesting.

It's not a consensual movie, it's a movie of rage depicting a man of passion , rage and flaws.

The director florent emilio siri, well known for Hostage, is at his best. This movie deserves public success.

A must see !!
