Storyline

A biographical look at Carla Bruni (1967- ) from a privileged childhood surrounded by music, to a modeling career, success as a singer and songwriter, and, since 2008, France's First Lady, the wife of President Nicolas Sarkozy. The structure us loosely chronological, mixing contemporary interviews (with Bruni, her mother and sister, her friends and her manager) with footage of her singing. A few news clips show her in her public role. The emphasis is on her writing of music and lyrics and on her singing style. She looks back with gratitude at her luck, and she looks ahead to performing live again and to being an old woman singing the blues. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Carla Bruni: attractive, talented, famous, but not very interesting
2 July 2012 | by xWRLSee all my reviews

This documentary was filmed not all that long after Bruni's husband became President of France, and Sarkozy plays a minimal role here. Most of the time goes to interviews with Bruni, her mother, and her sister--all of whom have interesting things to say about their lives--and it's maybe as a case study of a set of privileged lives that the documentary comes closest to serving a useful purpose.

But all is told from Bruni's perspective, and that gets tiresome after a while. She has a lot going for her. She's upbeat, multi-faceted, and has a great command of English. But-- surprisingly-- she turns out to be a member of that majority who have no business being the subject of a documentary, at least as far as this film explores.
