THE SUNDAY FILM

As early as 1999, Antoine de Caunes thought about a biopic project on Claude François. He is already thinking of Jérémie Renier in the role of singer, at a time when the Belgian actor began his career in front of the camera of the Dardenne brothers and François Ozon. 13 years later, he who had never danced or sung in his life indulges in intense physical preparation between sport, vocal coaching, learning choreography or even drums and percussion lessons. His styling team completes his unsettling resemblance to the one he embodies – the idol of an entire generation. A stunning performance rewarded with the Swann d’Or for Best Actor, as well as a César nomination in the same category.

Through this performance, the director Florent-Emilio Siri shows the complexity of the personality of Claude François without ever falling into melodrama or ease. Cloclo stands out as a benchmark of the genre, collecting an average of 4/5 spectator ratings on AlloCiné after having won over 1.7 million spectators when it was released in France.
