Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life

A biopic of famed French singer Serge Gainsbourg. Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, we follow him from his childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris and his transition from painter to jazz musician to pop superstar, as well as through his many relationships. The film employs a witty surrealistic style and a soundtrack that acts as a time capsule of Paris in the 1960s.
