French singer Vincent Delerm paid a moving tribute to actor Jean-Louis Trintignant, who died on Friday at the age of 91.
He is one of the most beautiful lyricists of French song and when he confides his pain, like Friday evening on his Instagram account, his words are magnificent and touch the heart. The French singer Vincent Delerm paid tribute to the actor Jean-Louis Trintignant , died Friday at the age of 91. “I liked everything about you. Charm. The face, the voice, the smile. This way you had of sometimes summing up your youth in three words: “I was pretty”. As a student, I enjoyed reading this book in which we learned that the most difficult thing for you when you started was to erase your southern accent, your way of never theorizing your talent. I watched you so many times wrap yourself in that blanket the evening of your night at Maud’s. I enjoyed walking later in the streets of Clermont-Ferrand in search of the addresses of this Rohmer shoot. My Night at Maud’s, my favorite movie forever. And then Vivement Dimanche, Trois couleurs Rouge, A man and a woman: an actor who plays in four of your favorite films is necessarily your favorite actor, ”he confides first, a cinephile – he also sang during of the recent opening ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival.
He then explains the genesis of the sublime song “Deauville sans Trintignant”: “I didn’t ‘add’ your voice-over at the end of the song Deauville sans Trintignant, it didn’t happen like that but in the reverse order: I wrote the song to justify hearing that voice. It was the starting point. Then there was this chance that Marie passed on the song to you and that you liked it.
“I loved everything about you”
And then, he talks about his encounters with the actor. “On the first tour you came twice, the first to the Chêne Noir theater in Avignon and then to a summer festival in Nyon. Someone warned me in the afternoon “Mr. Trintignant would like to come this evening with his wife but as it is a standing concert, do you think it possible to make him sit on stage behind you?” I sang Deauville with a lump in my throat knowing that you were there, behind me, and I think about it every time I sing the song since. We talked a lot after the concert. It was an evening at the end of July 2003, and it was also the one during which Marie left. The next day, when I heard the news, I thought I had seen you on the last happy evening of your life,” he wrote again.
“Hope you happy again now. Last night I found this invitation to one of your shows at the Théâtre de la Madeleine. These simple and touching words. Thank you Jean-Louis for so much kindness, so much discretion, so much beauty, so much talent. I loved everything about you,” he concludes.
