France | 1976 | Serge Gainsbourg
The first film written and directed by iconic French singer and songwriter Serge Gainsbourg is a love triangle that begins when a lonely truck-stop waitress (Jane Birkin, Gainsbourg’s then-partner) falls for a hunky garbage collector (American cult actor and Warhol sex symbol Joe Dallesandro), making her boyfriend jealous. The movie shares its title with that of a sexually-explicit 1969 pop hit by Gainsbourg and Birkin. With Gérard Depardieu. “This meditation on sex, love, lust, death and misplaced machismo is one of those rare films that could comfortably screen in arthouses and grindhouses.” –RogerEbert.com. Adults only! Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 88 min.
