The Cinefamily says…

The Captain had Tennille, Buckingham had Nicks — and Gainsbourg had Birkin, Bardot, Deneuve, Karina, Hardy, Gall, Greco, Adjani, Faithfull, Paradis, Barbara, Bambou, Dalida, etc. Gainsbourg’s been called a scoundrel, pervert and misogynist, yet female singers in France felt it a seminal moment in their career to sing a song penned by the rogue. For the breezy, hip-shaking feature documentary Gainsbourg And His Girls, filmmakers Didier Varrod and Pascal Forner raided the archives of INA (Institute Nationale Audio-Visuel). And boy, was nationally-owned French TV ever cool! This is an essential deep look at the artist who most Americans only know of through his sly, seductive provocateur mask. Join us for the L.A. premiere of this fantastic new documentary!
