gainsbourgaheroiclife
Serge Gainsbourg in Repetto Zizi oxfords. Jane Birkin in an eyelet crochet dress. Brigitte Bardot in a leopard coat. Whether you're a Francophile or just mad about '60s Parisian fashion, you'll swoon when these larger-than-life icons come to the big screen in Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life, opening this weekend at the Embarcadero Center Cinema.
With a surrealistic narrative style, costumes to die for, and a nostalgic soundtrack, first-time director Joann Sfar films the life and many loves of notorious French bad boy Serge Gainsbourg, the pop singer who won the heart of the indelible Jane Birkin. (FYI: They later gave birth to Charlotte Gainsbourg!) Deconstructing the man behind the myth, you won't want to miss what may be the most fashionable film of the year. [In French with English subtitles.]
