The critical consensus

It doesn’t whitewash Francois’ alarmingly controlling ways with wives and workmates, but the loving recreations of Cloclo’s shows and lavish lifestyle don’t translate as well for UK audiences as the hip Gainsbourg did.

This biopic of French singer Claude François almost summons the grandeur of a Scorsese personality opera.

Aside from some nice dovetailing of form and content, there’s not much more than what’s up there on the screen.

David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 21/06/2012

Jérémie Renier is magnetic in the title role: energetic, infuriating, and oddly creepy.
