Saturday night saw the Beiteddine Art Festival host one of France's national treasures, legendary actor Gerard Depardieu, in a tribute concert to his friend Barbara.Despite Depardieu being 18 years younger than her, the two formed a close bond when the actor rose to international acclaim in the '80sAlthough the crowd couldn't help but notice the actor's difficulty in hitting high notes, the dramatization of Barbara's songs, brought out by the actor's famed theater background, saved the performance from turning into a dull tribute act.As Depardieu performed an impressive 20-song repertoire of her classics, it was the little moments in between the songs, when the actor's charisma was released, that really charmed the audience.
