"National pop hero and bad boy Serge Gainsbourg (Lucien Ginzburg) was more than just Jewish, however. As a child during the occupation, he had been forced to wear a yellow star and fear for his life. While his family's flight from Paris ultimately saved him, the psychological effects went deep and later influenced his emergence as France's Grand Pierre de Punk. Gainsbourg made clear that he had absorbed his Nazi oppressors' lesson that he was genetically vile, and had come early in life to see his face as grotesque. An A-list celebrity Lothario who infamously recorded not just one, but two version of what in essence is a musical take on simultaneous orgasm, "Je t'aime. Moi non plus" (the first with French sex goddes Brigitte Bardot, the second with her English counterpart Jane Birkin), Gainsbourg regularly referred ot himself as the Beast who the Beauties - a line the French media unfortunately seemed all too ready to accept."
