In 1948, Edith Piaf presented Charles Aznavour with a camera, a gift he never left. By 1982, Charles filmed hours of rolls that formed his diary. Aznavour filmed his life, and lived while filming. Where was he going, he took his camera with him, recording everything wherever I went. The moments of your life, the places that went, your friends, your loves, your boredom. A few months before I die, he started to roll out his films with Marc di Domenico and then decided to make a film, your movie.
