I just saw this film and it's a MUST SEE for anyone interested in the history of French Pop and the work and life of controversial music composer Serge Gainsbourg would be interested in this film. Eric Elmosnino who plays Gainsbourg gives an incredible performance in this role and the beautiful model and actress Laeticia Casta is truly incredible in the role of Brigitte Bardot.
