Gainsbourg

Serge Gainsbourg incarnates France’s impertinent musical hero who seduced the country’s most beautiful women from Juliette Gréco to Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve. With Jane Birkin, his legendary lover, he gave birth to Charlotte Gainsbourg, the acclaimed inheritor of her parent’s talents she ingenuously combines on discs and screens with a charming taste for scandal. When the couple parted, Jane Birkin settled with the director Jacques Doillon and gave birth to Lou Doillon who is an accomplished and eclectic artist who draws, sings, acts and models with a very Parisian nonchalance. On his side, Serge Gainsbourg founded another family with Bambou and Lucien who strongly lives in the footsteps of his father. The Gainsbourg tribe is the very incarnation of modern families, an edgy royal recomposed tribe - the very embodiment of Parisian bohemian chic - the whole closely observed through the elegant lens of Jane Birkin’s eldest daughter, the late Kate Barry.
