Laetitia Becoming Bardot


I always knew I wasn't alone in thinking that bombshell Laetitia Casta strongly resembled Brigitte Bardot. The curves, the eyes, the sex appeal....there's no denying her likeness to the French screen icon.

I'm so excited that now I actually get to see Laetitia portrait Bardot on the big screen in Gainsbourg, a film about the music and life of French singer, songwriter, actor, and icon, Serge Gainsbourg. It's premiering this week in NYC at the Tribeca Film Festival.


Based on the remarkable life of iconic French singer, poet, writer and actor Serge Gainsbourg, the film is a surreal and evocative record of Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino) growing up in 1940s Nazi-occupied Paris, when he was called Lucien Ginsberg, through to his transformation into the hard-living showman, enfant terrible and successful song-writer of the 50s and 60s, and a famous womaniser who bedded some of the era's most beautiful women including Brigitte Bardot (Laetitia Casta) and Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon), to his notoriety in the 70s and 80s. A visually and narratively innovative project that features special effects from the makers of Pan's Labyrinth (El laberinto del fauno), in Gainsbourg (Vie héroïque) we glimpse the fantasy world that drove his inspiration, the women he loved and lost and most of all, the music that made him a legend.

Now the hard part...scoring tickets. There are only four screenings and the only way to get tickets is to wait on line 60 minutes prior to movie time. Admission begins 15 minutes before program start time based on availability. The stress, the pressure....wish me luck! :)
