Charles Trenet (1913-2001) - singer, poet, composer, writer. This documentary follows Charles Trenet’s seven decade-long career, from his early success in the “Charles and Johnny” duo, to his exposure on Maurice Chevalier’s show at the end of the thirties, his whirlwind tour around the American continent in the forties, his abandonment by the public in favor of rock ’n’ roll in the sixties, his retirement in 1975, and until his comeback in the nineties.
