The Magnificent Mr Brel

Borowski sent me this link – it’s Jacques at his acerbic best…quite a performance…

On YouTube, they describe it like this:

“A searing performance from his last Olympia concert Jacques Brel enacts a story of young man who is rejected by his girl’s petit bourgeois family. He proceeds to demolish the members one by one. The incredible facial expressions, hand movements and body language, as well as the simple mesmeric two chord accompaniment add an unparalleled theatricality to this performance.”
