Based on the remarkable life of iconic French singer, poet, writer and actor Serge Gainsbourg, the film is a surreal and evocative record of Gainsbourg's youth growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris, when he was called Lucien Ginsberg, through to his transformation into the hard-living showman, enfant terrible and successful song-writer of the 50s and 60s (famous for his glamorous lovers including Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin), to his notoriety in the 70s and 80s. A visually and narratively innovative project that features special effects from the makers of Pan's Labyrinth, Gainsbourg is groundbreaking cinema. We glimpse the fantasy world that drove his inspiration, the women he loved and lost and most of all, the music that made him a legend. From the graphic imagination of Joann Sfar, Gainsbourg is musical bio-pic like nothing else seen before.
