Aznavour by Charles
Aznavour le regard de Charles (N/C 12A+)
Dir Marc di Domenico
For more than 70 years, every song by singer Charles Aznavour invited his legions of adoring fans into a magical dream of music and romance. Aside from the thousands of songs that made this French-Armenian polymath a star, Aznavour’s life beyond music was even more extraordinary. Actor, political activist, diplomat and filmmaker, Aznavour by Charles enthrallingly reveals a complicated, multi-talented man who entertained for the greater part of a century. Narrated by award-winning French actor Romain Duris, this documentary knits together footage from Aznavour’s vast personal experiences to present an unparalleled insight into the man himself and also his relationships with friends, including Frank Sinatra, Édith Piaf, Charles Trenet and Brigitte Bardot.
