Mylène Farmer et Julia : Discussion Générale

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by Deleted member 6896, Nov 30, 2017.

  1. I spent the morning watching the documentary and was basically in a trance watching it, even though it is mainly all in French it makes no difference as you can get the gist of what's going on. This must be the first time she has ever given so much access but you still don't learn a whole lot about her (which is fine by me), I don't need her to be relatable. The whole thing is beautifully shot. There is a hotel room scene with an unidentified person lying on the bed, her partner maybe? I learned she is a fan of coconut water (and possibly chicken) and she loves her Games Of Thrones dogs. Sting makes an appearance and we see Jean Paul Gaultier for a second. The documentary gives the impression she is collaborative and drama free.

    As my French is very bad if there are any revelations can someone post on here? Anything mentioned in relation to future plans?

  2. Is there no subtitle option for the doc?
  3. The only thing that seems to suggest a possibility to go on is the fact that the very last shot of the documentary is Mylène rehearsing her 2019 entrance saying that "next time she'll do a normal entrance".

    It is very strange because after 25 years being a huge fan of hers, this was the first time I saw her in a sort of normal surrounding/atmosphere and it still all felt really natural/familiar to me.

    No subtitles. At least the first episode is 70% dancing and mood shots so it‘s not too bad. Should have paid attention in those French classes I guess.

  5. I'm not great at French listening either but her voices overs and the general mood makes it look/sound like this is her final tour, and she is retiring due to health reasons.

    She seems very collaborative in this documentary. She has a minor disagreement with her driver about her upcoming schedule and also doesn't wear her seatbelt in the car. That is what I took away mainly.

    I wish I had discovered Myèlene and Alizée when taking French AS level. I would have done my oral examination on them, particularly the explicit meaning of their lyrics.
  6. Retiring from touring or retiring for good?
  7. Pretty sure she is not retiring, else we would have heard a lot more news about it!

    I was more remarking about the serious, melancholy mood. Somewhat typical of Mylène and her songs about death etc.

  8. Sorry, I got scared! I hate how the threat of retirement is always around the corner with her, but I guess that’s part of her brand, ddd.

  9. My hope is that it is unlikely that she would have signed a single album deal with Universal when she left Polydor? Then again I have pas de doute that she can do whatever she likes.
  10. I tried to do this but I settled on Jean Pierre Jeunet instead.

    French popular DJ The Avener, who produced Mylène & Sting's Stolen Car, was commissioned to do a remix of L'Âme Dans L'Eau. A CD Single and a vinyl should follow this autumn.

    **Mylène update**

    A new Best Of compilation will hit the shops in December. A colourful photoshoot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino was done a couple of days ago in Paris.

    We don't know yet if it will be a ''2011-2021'' tracks selection or a larger thing/boxset reuniting all her hits from 1984 to 2021. But it will include her latest single L'Âme Dans L'Eau.

    She ain't fooling anyone with "live versions from previous tours".

    I find her obssession with Albator kinda cute. It shows again on her latest Best Of cover. The character was one of the main inspiration behind her 2019 Paris residency wig along with the Blade Runner movie.
