This month, the Alliance Française Ciné-Club is treating you to an excellent movie about the Life and Times of Serge Gainsbourg : Gainsbourg : Vie Héroïque
Expect an original movie from the creative mind of Joann Sfar (a major Bande-Dessinée artist for his first film) but do not expect a traditional biopic. The Serge Gainsbourg estate and his ex muses approved of the movie and you will see a personal and poetic evocation of the tribulations of France’s greatest musician and artist of the 20th Century by another great artist whom has clearly a point of view.
You will be transported along 5 decades following the rise and fall of a major artist with his idiosyncrasies from his youth as a young jewish boy to his attempt as a painter, through his incredible success to his collapse as a drunken icon.
Our goal with the presention before the film will be to open a window on Serge Gainsbourg’s universe (writer, composer, singer, actor, movie director and so on) as well as on Joan Sfar’s comics and in general the French and Belgian bande-dessinée as the 9th Art.
Please be there early for this time a longer presentation before the movie and then the usual discussion with a glass of wine after the movie.
Seats are limited so hurry up and contact us to book yours!
