The Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection

The Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection

Starting at: $26.00

THE CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG COLLECTION Three rare movies for just $26.00 - that's $10.00 less than if you purchased them separately! All three movies are French language with English subtitles. Before she shocked moviegoers with her intense sex scenes in Lars von Trier movies, Miss Gainsbourg was a darling of coming-of-age films in France. Her show biz pedigree is made up of French musician/filmmaker Serge Gainsbourg and beautiful British actress Jane Birkin. At a very young age Charlotte followed in her parents' footsteps and became a film actress. At twelve years of age, she 'sang' on her father Serge's song "Lemon Incest", and appeared in the accompanying music video. This would be the first of many performances in her career to gain some notoriety (à la père Serge), but despite her controversial choices over the years, Charlotte Gainsbourg remains a highly respected and sucessful actress and singer. Here's what's in the collection:

Charlotte for Ever 1986. Color. 90 minutes. French language with English subtitles. Image quality: excellent. Infamous French composer Serge Gainsbourg directs and stars with his real-life fourteen-year-old daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg in this controversial cult classic with dark overtones. Serge plays an alcoholic screenplay writer who is a widower. Charlotte plays his fifteen year old daughter who must cope with her father's erratic behavior which includes barging into her room as she lays on her bed half-naked, and forcibly holding her down as he goes on a drunken rant. A very rare and long-out-of print cult collectible! Contains nudity.

La petite voleuse 1988. Color. 105 minutes. French language with English subtitles. Image quality: good. In a small town in post-World-War-II France, an unhappy sixteen-year-old named Janine tries to escape her dreary situation by any means at her disposal. Three successive friends, Michel, a married lover, Raoul, a fellow thief, and Mauricette, a photographer and fellow prisoner, help her learn from her mistakes. 16/17 year old Charlotte Gainsbourg, no stranger to risqué roles, has a love scene with her middle age costar Didier Bezace (who plays Michel). The lovely Nathalie Cardone, who plays her friend Mauricette, has a nice topless scene in which she defiantly tells a nun "My tits need air!". Very good movie. Contains nudity.

L'effrontée 1985. Color. 91 minutes. French language with English subtitles. Image quality: good. Thirteen-year-old Charlotte Castang (played by thirteen-year-old Charlotte Gainsbourg) is a frustrated, angry girl who is an outcast at school, and freqently fights with her family at home. She has low self-esteem, is antisocial, and finds little joy in her day-to-day existence until two new people enter her world. First, she meets Jean, an overly-friendly, twenty-something man who tries to seduce her. Later, when Charlotte meets a lovely young piano prodigy named Clara, she becomes infatuated with the girl, and hopes to begin a glamorous new life of concerts and touring as part of Clara's entourage. Precocious starlet Charlotte Gainsbourg is terrific in this early role for which she won the 1986 César award for "Most Promising Actress". Contains brief nudity.
