Regard de Georges Brassens

Regard de Georges Brassens

A Feature film by Sandrine Dumarais

Produced by Comic Strip Production

Release in France : 30/10/2013

    Synopsis

    After long years of hard times, singer and poet Georges Brassens used one of his first payments from a singing engagement to buy a camera. It is 1952, and the troubadour is not yet famous. He would go on to shoot footage over the next ten years, during which he moved from unknown beginnings to a fame, whose resonance would echo too loudly for this extremely shy man. Brassens filmed those he loved: his friends, family, wives and his cats. Sometimes he put the camera on a tripod and staged himself among his subjectes. At other times, the camera was passed from hand to hand and we glimpse him, mischievous and playful, demonstrating "a joie de vivre for which he was not well known," as Juliette Gréco says.
    Shot in color and black and white, a multitude of private moments from the life of Georges Brassens.
