Mike Brant: Laisse-moi t'aimer

Ludicrously handsome and endowed with a robust set of pipes, Israeli singer Moshe Brand (in Europe, Mike Brant) dominated the French and Israeli pop charts in the early 70s but committed suicide at age 28. This worshipful 2002 documentary by Erez Laufer interweaves footage of the singer in his playboy prime and recent interviews with surviving relatives, lovers, bandmates, and hangers-on. Musically, Brant was a francophone Engelbert Humperdinck; personally, he comes across as a complete cipher. Loyal fans (who are apparently numerous) and lovers of Euro kitsch (who will watch for Brant's impression of Jerry Lewis) should be delighted, but everyone else would probably be better off renting George Cukor's A Star Is Born. In French and Hebrew with subtitles. 102 min.
