Ca ne se lit pas, ça se dit. Tous ces putains de dramaturges qui t'emmerdent, qui vont t'expliquer par A + B qu'il a écrit ça parce que si, parce que ça... Va chier ! Joue-le ! Respire-le !
   


Moi, je ne rêve pas d'être acteur, c'est ça qu'ils n'ont pas compris les mecs. Moi je rêve de survivre.

Short and honest
By Jack Anderson on May 3, 2019

After having read the book "Vivant !", which was a long interview with Gérard Depardieu, I then moved forward to this book, which is the story of Gérard Depardieu's life, written by him, with the help of Lionel Duroy.
The biography is quite interesting, because it is almost exactly the same book as "Vivant !". Of course, a biography is supposed to be the same, but sometimes, the words are almost the same. The anecdotes are the same, to such an extent that this book is almost a copy of the previous one.
But still, the book is actually much better, because this is not an interview. And because there is style! It is short, vivid, punchy. Depardieu is not afraid to talk about very personal things, such as delivering the babies of his own mother when he was only a kid, getting sucked by homosexuals in exchange of money and more. But while the magazines will only refer to those points, they won't tell you the full story. The story is that Gérard Depardieu is beyond life. He's quite a vast character that millions loved.

To me, the best moment from the book is when he talks about how he mastered the theater. These pages are simply brilliant. Depardieu explains how he is in the reality of the moment and shares exciting anecdotes about it.

I was less interested with the words about his children or his wives, because I actually don't really care about his family. And ironically, he also mentions multiple times that he is not a family man.

SUMMARY
I give it 5 out of 10. A short but good read, for anyone who likes (or even dislikes) Gérard Depardieu.
