It is an amusing and fantastic story of Serge Gainsbourg and his famous face. Where a little Jewish boy boasts in the Nazi occupied Paris; where a young and shy poet leaves his paintings and his little room under the roof to astound the Paris cabarets during the swinging sixties. It is a "heroic life" in which the creatures of his mind take life on the screen and his temper combines with outrageous love stories. From there is born a subversive work with a star, an unsubordinated but faithful citizen who made vibrate the whole planet.
