Jan 28: Gainsbourg by Joann Sfar - Vies d'Artistes 2/4

The Cultural Services of the French Embassy is proud to present FOUR powerful and imaginative cinematic works as part of the film series 'Vies d'Artistes'.

2 - Gainsbourg (Vie Héroïque) by Joann Sfar
2010 | France | 130 min
January 28 | 7:00 p.m.
In French w/ English Subtitles.

Gainsbourg (Vie héroïque) by Joann Sfar follows the famous French singer's upbringing in occupied France, his first successes and complex love affairs. An audacious portrayal of the charismatic singer's life, Gainsbourg is unconventional and imaginative in its use of fantastical elements representing the singer's conscience at very crucial moments of his life. Perfectly embodying the dramatic intensity of the movie, the soundtrack includes many of Gainsbourg's most famous songs.
