[Cannes 2024] Zaho de Sagazan covers “Modern Love” in tribute to Greta Gerwig

The singer rocked the main hall of the Palais des Festivals last night, performing David Bowie’s song in front of the filmmaker and president of the jury. A reference to the film “Frances Ha”, in which the latter plays the title role.

“Dear Greta, you are a gift for the festival. Then the festival has a gift for you”slips Camille Cottin, mistress of ceremonies, at the end of her opening speech of the 77e Cannes film festival. Silence reigns in the audience, the cameras and projectors then move towards the back of the large hall of the Palais des Festivals.

A sung and danced tribute

Surprised, the singer Zaho de Sagazan appears with a microphone in her hand, giving a slight smile towards the jury when the first guitar and drum notes of Modern Love. The artist begins a sublime cover of David Bowie’s song, playing with the audience, while walking straight towards the stage.

Moved, Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird, barbie, The Daughters of Doctor March), president of the jury this year, does not hold back from humming the words of this key song from the film Frances Ha (2012), in which the latter plays the title role. The feature film by Noa Baumbach was a worldwide success in theaters, and largely contributed to revealing the actress. Final tribute to the moment when Zaho runs on stage barefoot, and improvises a dance, which is reminiscent of that of Greta “Frances Ha” Gergwig, in the streets of New York. The singer finishes this powerful tribute on her knees, before taking the filmmaker’s hand.
