Je t'aime

There is a film now out about Serge Gainsbourg entitled Gainsbourg (Vie Héroïque) it's definitely a film that I'm intrigued to watch, mostly to know the story behind one of France's most famous musicians, who captured the hearts of many. There is a major drawback for those of you, like me, who live in the UK or the US; there is no screening, so we'll just have to wait for it to come out on dvd.

Interesting and really tragic fact: The woman who plays Jane Birkin, Lucy Gordon, is English and could not speak French before the film; she got the role out of hundreds of women. The tragic element is that she ended her life before the release of the film.

The woman sitting on the piano in the first image is suppose to be Brigitte Bardot.
