gainsbourg – araluen arthouse cinema
7pm Sun 5 Dec, Araluen Arts Centre, Larapinta Dr
(France) - Rated M Based on the remarkable life of iconic French singer, poet, writer
and actor Serge Gainsbourg. The film is a surreal and evocative record of
Gainsbourg growing up in 1940‘s Nazi-occupied Paris, when he was called Lucien
Ginsberg, through to his transformation into the hard-living showman enfant terrible and
successful song-writer of the 50s and 60s (and a famous womaniser who bedded some
of the era‘s most beautiful women including Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin), to his
notoriety in the 70s and 80s. From the graphic imagination of Joann Star, Gainsbourg
will be a musical biopic like nothing else seen before.
