Summary

Joann Sfar's GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE is a completely original take on one of France's greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous Jewish singer-songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino). Born 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 era's most beautiful women, including Juliette Greco, Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin. Employing a witty, surrealistic style and a soundtrack that includes many of the musician's greatest hits, GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE is a quintessential time capsule from 1960s Paris.
