Maxime Le Forestier: an icon of French music. 50 years of career and melodies that have been with us forever. "San Francisco," "My Brother," and "Pass My Way" are just a few titles that have transcended all eras. From the protest singer of the 70s to the serene artist he is today, his image and legacy have gradually taken shape.
On tour between Paris and Brussels, and at home in his house in Loir-et-Cher, surrounded by his loved ones and friends, Maxime opens up about his journey, his detours, and his most beautiful encounters. A portrait greatly enriched with French and Belgian archives, photos from the singer's personal collection, and testimonials from his sons and personalities such as Daniel Auteuil, Zazie, Francis Cabrel, Vanessa Paradis, and Thomas Dutronc.
As the story unfolds, there also emerges, in the background, a certain way of life that the artist has cultivated since his stay in that famous "blue house."
