Synopsis:
Hailed by critics as a triumphant return to his best, Gerard Depardieu is outstanding as nightclub crooner Alain Moreau in this enchanting romantic comedy. When he spies the beautiful Marion (Cecile de France) in the audience one night, Alain engineers a meeting with her through his friend Bruno (Mathieu Amalric). But the troubled Marion, burned by the experience of a failed marriage, is wary of becoming emotionally involved and shuns his advances. However, the smitten Alain isn't so easily dissuaded and sets about wooing the object of his affection.
Played with remarkable on-screen chemistry between de France and Depardieu, who also reveals an unexpected vocal talent for cabaret standards, 'The Singer' is a wistful. touching and superbly entertaining love story.

The Singer AKA Quand J'etais Chanteur - The Singer review by CT

Spoiler Alert
08/04/2010

A pleasant romantic film, telling the story of a gentle ageing french nightclub crooner meeting a beautiful ice queen. You may need to initially suspend belief in Gerard Depardieu attracting Cecile de France, but you'll soon find the leads chemistry brings you into the film. Look out for cameos from the real singer...
