Serge Gainsbourg, the chain smoking creator of heavy-breathing classic Je t'aime moi non plus and a reggae version of La Marseillaise joins Edith Piaf next week as the latest French singer to be revived on film. Gainsbourg, vie heroique, a new biopic of the singer who scandalised and seduced his public in equal measure follows La vie en rose, which won Marion Cotillard an Oscar in 2008 for her portrayal of the tortured Piaf. Little-known actor Eric Elmosnino plays Gainsbourg.
