Gauthier (Tom Dingler), a young journalist, finds a letter suggesting he might be the son of Guy Jamet (Alex Lutz in a César award-winning performance), a 72-year-old French pop singer who was famous from the 60’s to the 80’s. As the old-time singer embarks on a tour to promote his newly released covers album, Gauthier follows his maybe-biological father under the pretext of filming a documentary about Guy’s career.

Starring and directed by French filmmaker and comic Alex Lutz, GUY is a witty, warmhearted mockumentary about a seventy-something pop star who has seen better days and a son's attempt to retrace the life of the father he never knew. Screened during the Cannes Critics' Week, it’s a good-humored tour de force and audience pleaser.
