In the middle of the evening, singer-songwriter Vincent Delerm sat down at the piano and began the first bars of
Que je t'aime
, Johnny Hallyday's flagship song.
Before stopping to humorously ask the audience to hum the chorus with him.
The room lent itself to the game until the musician launched into a solo piano in front of a slide show of very beautiful love scenes from the cinema.

A sweet duo
At the end of this interlude, Virginie Efira reappeared on stage, taking her place alongside Vincent Delerm.
It was she who answered him by singing the chorus of the song, in a voice charged with emotion.
A moment out of time, long applauded by the public of this first evening of the Cannes Film Festival.
