From visionary graphic artist and director Joann Sfar comes a completely original take on one of the world's greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous Serge Gainsbourg.
The film is an enchanting glimpse at the life of a musical icon, his early years growing up as a Jewish boy in 1940's Nazi-occupied Paris, his wildly successful song-writing years and of course his now legendary romances with some of the era's most famous women, Brigitte Bardot, Juliette Greco and Jane Birkin.
