Gainsbourg (Vie héroïque) international trailer online
Joann Sfar directs this film which he adapted from his own graphic novel about the well renowned French singer and artist Serge Gainsbourg, following his life from growing up in 1940's through to his death in 1991, so it's his entire life story.
The casting is exciting with Eric Elmosnino playing Gainsbourg, Lucy Gordon playing Jane Birkin, and Laetitia Casta playing Brigitte Bardot, all of whom you can see in the trailer.
Here's the blurb for Gainsbourg (Vie héroïque):
From visionary graphic artist and director Joann Sfar comes a completely original take on one of France's greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous Serge Gainsbourg.
Gainsbourg is an enchanting glimpse at his early life, growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris, and through his successful song-writing years in the 1960s until his death in 1991. Taking the best from La Vie en Rose and Amelie, Gainsbourg is one of 2010's highly awaited films brought to us by one of the most beloved graphic artists of our time and the team behind the magical creatures of Pan's Labyrinth.
Now for the trailer.
It certainly looks like it will be stylish, but will it appeal to a general audience, and if it doesn't would it really matter? Is this one for the art house fans?
