Monday, October 8th

I just watched Gainsbourg : Vie Héroïque .
It's a great movie and that's why i'm going to write an article about it. 

First of all, I would like to say that the cast is really amazing. Eric Elmosnino who plays the main character (Serge Gainsbourg) is, in addition of his similarity with the famous french singer, an incredible actor! More over, I was especially impressed by Laeticia Casta who plays Brigitte Bardot (I already saw her in L'appartement, and thought she was talented but now i'm sure of it) and to finish the performance of Lucy Gordon as Jane Birkin is incredible too. I'm very sorry that she killed herself because she really had something...
And i almost forgot Kacey Mottet Klein who plays the young Gainsbourg. I don't know where they found this boy, but he has a gift! 

Anyway, i must admit that i wasn't expecting this kind of movie at all. I thought it was going to be a simple biopic but it really isn't. Firstly, there are animations which are made by the director himself : Joann Sfar. 

I think these animations really bring something to the film and make the movie very unique. But I have to say that i was a bit scared about the character we can  see on the second picture, this "thing" represents an other face of Gainsbourg. I love the concept though and the idea is great!

Further more, i have to talk about the music! The choice of the songs is perfect. I can't stop listening to the songs now. Especially "Je bois" (you can listen the song here)

Well, for his first movie i think that Joann Sfar did an amazing job. You should all watch the movie!
