Singer. Songwriter. Hellraiser.
Excited to see Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life tonight. Pretty sure I will love this film — we’ve previously discussed my love for Jane Birkin, Laetitia Casta looks amazing at Bardot, and when you add in a liberal dose of surrealism, 60s music and puppets (?!?), you’ve pretty much guaranteed me two hours of bliss.
If you happen to be in New York this weekend, you can catch a viewing at the Soho House on Saturday night. Find further details here.
“Best-selling comic book artist Joann Sfar delivers an inventive biography of famed French singer Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino). Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, Sfar follows him from his childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris, his transition from painter to jazz musician to pop superstar and his many relationships including Juliette Greco (Anna Mouglalis), Brigitte Bardot (Laetitia Casta) and Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon) while employing a witty surrealistic style and a soundtrack that acts like a time capsule to ’60’s Paris.“
