★★

In France, the late Serge Gains­bourg was a na­tional trea­sure: an as­ton­ish­ingly ver­sa­tile

mu­si­cian, po­etic lyri­cist, so­cial critic, hi­lar­i­ous celebrity and a mav­er­ick pur­suer of the high life. To the rest of the world, he was an ugly-look­ing bloke with a knack for

pick­ing up great­look­ing women (eg: Brigitte Bar­dot). This lav­ish biopic cap­tures the man’s mys­tique.
