Time Out says

An 'auto-biopic' in that the commentary consists of the actor/singer's own reminiscences, recorded as he prepared material for his book, You See, I Haven't Forgotten, this is, inevitably, an affectionate look at a great French cultural icon. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Marseille, through music-hall and movies, and relationships with Piaf and Monroe, to his final disenchantment with communism and his sorrow and loneliness after the death of his wife Simone Signoret. Fascinating partly for the archive footage, and partly for the apparent honesty of Montand's revelations.
