A must for Serge Gainsbourg fans
18 August 2008 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Despite the fact I can't speak a word of French, I am addicted to Serge Gainsbourg. His songs are decadent and sleazy, yet so stylish and well written one never feels the urge to take a cold shower afterwords. I wish I could understand his lyrics, because they are apparently very poetic. Still, I can't get enough of the man's output, so when I found out he made a full music video to his classic album "History of Melody Nelson", I knew I needed to see it pronto. I can honestly say I was not disappointed. The film is full of the swinging pop-art excess one would come to expect from Monsieur Gainsbourg. Jane Birkin, in addition to being very easy on the eyes, exudes a mysterious type of charisma which perfectly complements Gainsbourg's more down to Earth weariness. Plus, the backgrounds (which include paintings by Dali, Man Ray, and Henri Rousseau) are very well chosen. All in all, if you're a fan of French pop music, you need to see this immediately. (8/10)
