Biopic Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life captures the compelling saga of one of France's great characters, the infamous, influential, and hugely talented Jewish singer-songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosino). See the trailer (posted below); New York Vulture posts an enchanting exclusive clip of Brigitte Bardot and Gainsbourg singing the Bonny and Clyde theme.

Comic book artist Joann Sfar directs this portrait of Gainsbourg, beginning with his childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris, through his struggles as a jazz musician, and then his rise to pop stardom in '60s Paris. And the French musician's amours were gorgeous and sexy, from Juliette Greco (Anna Mouglalis) and Bardot (Laetitia Casta) to Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon).

Music Box Films will release Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life on August 31.
