Je t'aime: The Story of French Song with Petula Clark
Documentary which explores the story of the lyric-driven French chanson and looks at some of the greatest artists and examples of the form. Petula Clark, who shot to stardom in France in the late 1950s for her nuanced singing and lyrical exploration, is our guide. We meet singers and artists who propelled chanson into the limelight, including Charles Aznavour, Juliette Greco, Anna Karina, Jane Birkin and, more recently, Marc Almond. In exploring the famous chanson tradition and the prodigious singers who made the songs their own, the film continues the story into contemporary French composition, looking at new lyrical forms exemplified by current artists such as Stromae, Zaz, Tetes Raides and Etienne Daho, who also give exclusive interviews.
