Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.03.09] France movie news drama biopic

French 60s pop fans have reason to rejoice because the first trailer for the new Serge Gainsbourg biopic, called simply Gainsbourg, has finally been released.

I know what you're thinking and yes, Serge is indeed the father of Antichrist star Charlotte Gainsbourg, but he's also one of the most iconic French personalities in history as well as a massively respected name in contemporary pop music. Oh yeah, and he successfully bedded Brigitte Bardot, so yes, he truly lived a full life.

A glimpse at the life of French singer Serge Gainsbourg, from growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris through his successful song-writing years in the 1960s to his death in 1991 at the age of 62.

The trailer is your standard biopic fair, lavishly shot and full of great performances by Eric Elmosnino as Serge, Lucy Gordon as Jane Birkin and Laetitia Casta as B.B.
