The movie is too much an act of hero-worship for there to be any critical distance.

What may feel like Mr. Sfar's indulgences are sometimes just that, but one could hardly make an honest movie about Gainsbourg that wasn't as recklessly ambitious as this.
At once overly episodic and playfully arty, like a TV movie made by Fellini.
The movie unreels his musical biography with an unending series of tastes of songs and performances. You may be surprised by how many you recognize.
