Entertainment Reviews:

Hollywood Reporter - 02/01/2010
"[T]he first half of the movie, in which we meet some of France's greatest postwar music hall stars such as Juliette Greco, Boris Vian and the Freres Jacques, is lively and interesting..."
Hollywood Reporter - 02/01/2010
"Eric Elmosnino's impersonation of Gainsbourg in his drink-sodden progress from struggling painter to cabaret performer to aging proto-punk is a highly impressive piece of work."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2010
"[I]ts combination of realist narrative and poetic animation makes it both a touching biopic and an inspired musical."
Uncut - 07/23/2010
"Eric Elmosnino excels in the lead role. Not only does he look like Serge, but he carries himself with the impassive majesty of a silent movie star..."
Empire - 01/07/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "Eric Elmosnino miraculously nails Gainsbourg's louche, lupine suavity and beguiling vulnerability..."
Total Film - 02/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "Eric Elmosnino is startlingly convincing in the title role.."
Los Angeles Times - 09/02/2011
"Unconventional, imaginative, nothing if not audacious....A portrait of creativity from the inside, a serious yet playful attempt to find an artistic way to tell an emotional truth."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/09/2011
"There's one good reason to see this biopic of the French pop-cabaret songster Serge Gainsbourg, and that's its lead actor, Erik Elmosnino."

Product Description:

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.
