100 films in 2012: Gainsbourg (La Vie Heroique)
I knew nothing about Gainsbourg before I watched this film, I merely picked it up on a whim
I am, unfortuantley yet to look up his music, 6 months later
I loved the romantic way in which the story was told. I found the whole film really off the wall and abstract in the way that ‘Amelie’ was, with the appearances of Filipus and other apparitions.
The reoccuring Illustrations really played to the film’s strengths, putting a different twist on the historical events of the film such as WW2 which was interesting to see
All of the female roles were done very well, with perhaps the exception of Juliette Greco who had more of a bit part
All in all I found the film very enchanting
