Salam

, "peace" in Arabic, was even "the most seen in theaters on Friday July 1, thus propelling it to No. 1 at the box office", underlines Brut in its press release.

In the documentary that she co-directed, Diam's comes out of a 12-year media silence to deliver her truth and talk about her suicide attempts, her internment, her conversion to Islam and her foundation dedicated to orphans in Mali... Apart from an incursion into an empty Zenith in Paris, the film is not about music.

The 40-year-old presents herself veiled and covered from head to toe.

The film is split into two parts: the unhappiness of showbiz times and the aftermath.

The film will be broadcast in September on the paid online platform BrutX.
