Charles Berling is a prolific actor, director, scenario writer and producer known for his charismatic presence and his ability to immerse himself in very diverse roles. His name bears respect and recognition in his native France. In February 2012, he released his first album as a singer, aptly entitled “Jeune Chanteur” (New Singer). Being a great actor on stage and in films and a recognized director does not stop him from becoming a debutant – proudly debutant. With the singular mix of ambition and humility which characterizes the beginnings of an artist, he therefore entitled his album “Jeune Chanteur”.

What we hear in “Jeune Chanteur” are “little feelings and immense feelings’. Regis Cessarelli’s music direction play upon these variations – the softness of confidences, the magnitude of grand gestures, the urgency of pleasures…and Charles Berling is impatient to bring these new songs on stage.

“Debuting brings me back to the first values in the life of an artist: the freedom, the fight, the self-acceptance. I go forward to concerts terribly stressed out… and then I find an extraordinary pleasure. If I were to compare it to acting, singing makes me feel more naked. And we have to undress to make love.” – Charles Berling

Berling first earned acclaim in the theatre before making his film debut in 1993's “Salt on Our Skin”. Three years later, he earned widespread acclaim for his leading role in Patrice Leconte's “Ridicule”, in which he starred as an 18th century nobleman who learns to play a delicate and deadly game of wit at the court of Versailles – for which he earned a Best Actor César nomination (the film won four Césars, including Best Film). In the month of December, the Alliance Française de Singapour’s Ciné Club (Tuesday night movies) will feature a retrospective of Charles Berling’s films, including “Ridicule”.
