It’s a French version of ‘Becoming More Like Alfie’.

French humorist Valérie Lemercier recorded at the time an album. This song was used for the promo of both her album and Casanova, but it doesn’t appear on either.

There are two versions, the only difference between them being the “plus maintenant”, which doesn’t sound the same.

Alfie is a film featuring Michael Caine, to which ‘Becoming More Like Alfie’ is a reference.
