Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life, Drama, 130 min NR, French & Russian w/ Eng sub
Based on a graphic novel by the director (Joann Sfar), 'Gainsbourg' provides a glimpse at the tumultuous life of French singer Serge Gainsbourg, born Lucien Ginsberg, the precocious son of Russian-born Jews. The film follows Gainsbourg from growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris through his successful song-writing years in the 1960s to his death in 1991 at the age of 62.
Serge Gainsbourg gained fame and notoriety for his music, Muses and mercurialness. A talented musician and artist, Lucien (who later was persuaded by friends to change his name to the more "acceptable" Serge Gainsbourg) became the darling of the social scene, charming his way through a succession of affairs with beautiful women most notably Brigitte Bardot, Juliette Greco, and Jane Birkin.
