In 1948 Edith Piaf gave Charles Aznavour a Paillard-Bolex-camera, which he kept for the rest of his life. Until 1982 Aznavour filmed countless hours of footage.
Like a very personal diary, the camera was present at all the decisive experiences and encounters of his life; he filmed his travels, his friends, his love affairs, his boredom. Shortly before his death, Aznavour began to review the material with filmmaker Marc di Domenico and decided to make a film from the footage, his film. With AZNAVOUR BY CHARLES we can get to know the star chansonnier (180 million records sold) from a very intimate side.
