Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life

French comic book artist Joann Sfar directs this Terry Gilliam-esque biopic about nerdy-looking 1960s sex symbol Serge Gainsbourg. Star Eric Elmosnino does an uncanny job of looking like the late pop star while bedding a series of sexy muses (Bridget Bardot and Jane Birkin among them). The story is a bit episodic and not terribly deep, but the bright, visual flights of fancy (puppets, cartoons) make this a most unusual pop music biography. 130 minutes
