Taking the best from LA VIE EN ROSE and AMÃ‰LIE, renowned comic book artist Joann Sfarâ€™s GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE is a completely original take on one of Franceâ€™s greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous Jewish singer-songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino). Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, Sfar follows him from his precocious childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris, to his beginnings as small time jazz musician and finally pop superstar. Along the way he romances many of the eraâ€™s most beautiful women, including Juliette Greco (Anna Mouglalis), Brigitte Bardot (Laetitia Casta) and Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon). Employing a witty surrealistic style and a soundtrack that includes many of the musicianâ€™s greatest hits, GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE is a quintessential time capsule to â€˜60â€™s Paris.
Presented in French.
