Dieu fumeur de havanes.

So this is a middling to awful Serge track, but this video. OMG, as the kids say when they are discussing French pop from the late 70s/early 80s. Here we have Serge and Catherine Deneuve lip-synching while standing on a set that would be outdone by your average high school prom. The cross fades, Serge at max-creepiness, Deneuve looking like she’s never speaking to this freak again, and the announcer all add up to pure gold.


From the upcoming Serge Gainsbourg biopic, ‘Vie Heroique’.


The late Lucy Gordon as Jane Birkin and Eric Elmosnino as Serge.
