The plant started to grow: he was a challenging guitarist, her voice was spontaneous and her body agile. Irène sings to tell a story, and Francis is the composer, he plays and creates the beat. He is harsh but fair and she is flexible but rigorous. It is only beginning and the story continues to grow...Irène JacobAlong with her musical talent, Irène Jacob is considered one the best French actresses of her generation.
