Jane by Charlotte
Charlotte Gainsbourg, best known as an actress in Lars von Trier's Antichrist and Melancholia, among others, makes her debut as a director in this documentary with a portrait of her mother, the iconic singer and actress Jane Birkin. It is a film about a woman with a rich life, with a wealth of experiences and adventures, with a life full of highs, but definitely also the necessary lows. For instance, her stormy relationship with the equally legendary singer Serge Gainsbourg, with whom she sang the controversial but popular hit Je t'aime... moi non plus, was not all roses.
We get to know the two remarkable women in a series of intimate conversations about life, art and love. Living is creating and creating is living: you understand where Charlotte Gainsbourg's creative drives come from when she is in the company of her irresistibly charismatic mother. Jane By Charlotte is a surprisingly personal and poetic portrait of a woman many of us only think we know.
