Gainsbourg Film Comes to SF

We can’t wait for this film to open October 28 here in SF at the Landmark Theatre: GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE.

Joann Sfar’s film is a completely original take on one of France’s greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous singer-songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino). Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, Serge evolves from precocious child in Nazi-occupied Paris, to small time jazz musician, and finally international pop superstar. Along the way, he romances many of the era’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 showcases the musician’s greatest hits, GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE is a sensual delight and a quintessential time capsule of 1960’s Paris. for details.
