An intimate portrait of Francis Cabrel. Who is this discreet man, who stands back from the world and whose songs form part of our cultural heritage? Videos, photos, TV appearances, stage recordings, interviews and everyday footage help us to understand his career, his values and his doubts.
Behind the artist who sings openly about human feelings there’s a very enigmatic man, at once close to us and distant.
It's hard to know who the discreet but hugely popular Francis Cabrel really is, with his very particular accent and often out-dated look. What does this massive devotion to such an undemonstrative man mean? The songs of Francis Cabrel are now part of French culture and it is also through his lyrics that we will try to get a better understanding the singer’s darker side.
