Best selling comic book artist Joann Sfar delivers an inventive biography of famed French singer Serge Gainsbourg. Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, Sfar follows him from his childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris, his transition from painter to jazz musician to pop superstar and his many relationships including Juliette Greco, Brigitte Bardot, and Jane Birkin while employing a witty surrealistic style and a soundtrack that acts like a time capsule to '60s Paris.
