My Way, released in France as Cloclo, is a 2012 French biographical drama film about the life of French singer, songwriter and entertainer Claude François. It is co-written and directed by Florent Emilio Siri, and stars Jérémie Renier as François.

Cloclo is referring to François' nickname, while the international name was chosen due to the eponymous song popularized by Frank Sinatra, but originally co-written, co-composed and performed as "Comme d'habitude" by François. The film follows the life of the singer from his childhood in Egypt to his accidental death in 1978.



The film received positive reviews from film critics, who praised Renier's performance and Siri's direction. It holds a 83% rating on the film critics aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes based on 6 reviews.[2]
