Well, I really did not want to sing Femme like you in Berlin, as I conceived this performance 6 years ago – and Diane who invited us to participate to her Book release Party knew this one as we met at the King Village in Rome in 2008. But as I am parallely shooting a new film in which we needed the images, I eventually perfomed it just before my lastest performance. Balance
After a week of screenings, my Jury in charge of the Feature Films gives the prizes to Man at Bath (Christophe Honoré) and Madame X (Lucky Kuswandi).
Lying down on the warm metal plates along the river just in front of the club where we perform on that night, I cool down with Geo Wyeth, my artist fellow from the States. I am amazed he knows the work of Gainsbourg so well and we sing the first notes of l’hôtel particulier together. Nice moment between screenings, long rehearsals and the excitement of the audience.
