Yves Montand is Yves Montand, but even though the revered actor and singer is visiting the Marseilles of his formative years to perform and to reflect on his life, the picture is a fictional construct. Carving out territory in the then-aborning mockumentary genre, the great Demy casts César Award-nominated Françoise Fabian as Montand’s former flame and Mathilda May as her daughter while fashioning—but of course—musical numbers for Montand to strut his stuff in.
