Taking the best from LA VIE EN ROSE and AMELIE, renowned comic book artist Joann Sfar's GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE is a completely original take on one of France's greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous Jewish singer-songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino). Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, Sfar follows him from his precocious childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris, to his beginnings as small time jazz musician and finally pop superstar.
