Je suis venu vous dire… Gainsbourg by Ginzburg

Using an impressive array of songs, clips from home-movies, photographs intertwined with a fascinating montage of TV and radio interviews, this original and moving portrait of the French icon by Pierre-Henry Salfati gives Gainsbourg the opportunity to recount his life and his passions for jazz, painting, and women (Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin to name but a few). A reinvented and ambitious autobiography of Serge Gainsbourg from his beginnings in the Parisian left bank cabarets to his death in 1991.
