On Friday, June 22nd STUDIOCANAL and Ciné Lumière are teaming up to bring quality French cinema to the UK through the French Film First initiative. As a result, audiences at Ciné Lumière will have the chance to see CLOCLO before the rest of the UK when its released there on 22 June.
Frank Sinatra’s timeless hit My Way is one of the most famous and beloved songs of all time. CLOCLO is the fascinating story of the artist behind this legendary tune, Claude François (played by Jérémie Renier, The Kid With The Bike, In Bruges), a man whose ambition drove him straight to the top, but ultimately led him to a tragic end.
The legendary French singer, who died at the age of 39, has continued to fascinate fans more than 30 years later. He was a much-loved star and shrewd businessman, great showman and marketing magician, hit machine and magazine publisher, but also family man and ladies’ man.
Director Florent-Emilio Siri’s CLOCLO is the portrait of this complex character; always in a hurry, ahead of his time and hungry for love. The trailer is above.
