Docteur Jekyll et Monsieur Hyde

Actor Eric Elmosnino

Joann Sfar’s film “Serge Gainsbourg: Vie Heroique (A Heroic Life)” was just released yesterday in Europe. Still no word on a release date here in the States, but it has to make it over here sometime this year. I hope.

Did you know his 1969 classic “Je t’aime, moi non plus” was denounced by the Vatican? Just another reason to love the song. Also, apparently author Boris Vian, another guy who was no stranger to controversy, was a big influence on Gainsbourg’s early work. My friend Tosh over at Tam Tam Books has released several of Vian’s novels translated into English and, last I heard, had a translation of a Gainsbourg biography coming down the pipeline.
