We’re proud to be a part of this year’s touring UK Jewish Film Festival and supporting their aim of bringing Jewish related film to wider audiences.
This fantastically entertaining biopic gives a glimpse of the Jewish-French singer and national treasure Serge Gainsbourg's life from 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris to his 1968 chart-topping success with lover Jane Birkin to his death aged 62. With affairs with Brigitte Bardot and Juliette Greco, and almost constant controversy (and musical success) his heroic journey was anything but dull!
