a little film on serge gainsbourg

serge gainsbourg on dog abuse. this is near the end of the time when he was somewhat manageable. poor serge… in his drunken years he embarrassed himself many times, not to mention with whitney houston of all people; but, we do miss him nonetheless. i finally saw the film, gainsbourg: a heroic life, which was awful and rather shameless. the only bits of interest surfaced around the resemblance of eric elmosnino to serge, and laetitia casta’s surprisingly decent acting in the bardot dance. true serge fans would have thrown their repettos at the director joann sfar. how could you screw up such a life? by dd
