Do you have someone sexy to impress? This will be a great opportunity. Serge Gainbourg was an infamous sexy pants who romanced some of the most beautiful women of his time, including Brigitte Bardot. Not only was he French (oui! oui!), but the man had some mega crooning skills. And you know how the ladies love a talented musician. Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life opens to the public in Chicago on Friday, October 28 at the Music Box Theatre. You, however, can see it before then...at an exclusive screening...which, we both know, rocks. I have three pairs of tickets to give away to a pre-screening of the film at Chicago's Music Box Theatre (one of my fav Chicago date spots!) on Monday, October 17.
A quick film synopsis: 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 singer-songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino). Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, Gainsbourg evolves from a precocious child in Nazi-occupied Paris, to small-time jazz musician and finally international pop superstar. With a witty surrealistic style and a soundtrack showcasing many of Gainsbourg’s greatest hits, the film is a sensual delight and a quintessential time capsule of the eras he enjoyed.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Serge Gainsbourg's death. His extraordinary legacy includes the re-interpretation of his songs by numerous musicians including Marianne Faithfull, Beck, Sean Lennon, Kylie Minogue and Arcade Fire.
