Director Joann Sfar's biopic Gainsbourg, Vie Héroïque recounts the colorful life story of French chanteur and provocateur Serge Gainsbourg, known as much for his hugely outrageous antics in public as he was for his taboo-busting, often-hilarious song lyrics and orchestrations. Eric Elmosino stars as the lead, while the late, tragic actress Lucy Gordon (Spider-Man 3) co-stars as Gainsbourg's third wife, the actress-model Jane Birkin.
