Editorial Reviews

Serge (Serge Gainsbourg) is a hip and successful film director who leaves his pregnant wife to attend the annual advertising awards festival in Venice, and enters into a passionate affair with a young British woman (Jane Birkin). This sexy satire formed the background for one of the swinging sixties most famous real-life romances.

During the rehearsals for Pierre Grimblat s film Slogan, Serge Gainsbourg met the woman who would forever change his professional and personal life: Jane Birkin. They sang together for the first time on the film s theme-song, The Slogan Song, after which they recorded their version of Je t aime moi non plus that became a huge success and set the 70s on fire. Together, they lived one of the most beautiful love stories ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank heaven for little girls February 19, 2010
Format:DVD
"Slogan" is that type of film that French cinema seems to do better than anyone else, A mix-and-match of almost unlikeable characters who are redeemed by their love for each other. It is the type of love that is unfathomable and sometimes cruel, but made romantic by the artistry of the director's camera and the illogical logic of a screenplay (Betty Blue, anyone?)

In this case, the two misfits are Serge Faberge (Serge Gainsbourg, a popular French musician and actor who also wrote the score) and Evelyne (Jane Birkin, Blow Up). Serge is a forty year old advertisement director with a pregnant wife named Francoise (Andrea Parisy) and a bad case of ennui. His life is satisfyingly dull, with his skills as a director much in demand and his commercials constantly winning awards. At one such awards festival, in Venice, Serge meets the eighteen year old Evelyne, and in a case of lust at first sight the two are soon engaged in a torrid affair. You can probably figure out the rest of the story.

The back-story of "Slogan" gives it as much of its status as the film itself. A scandal erupted when the real-life Serge and Jane (the woman for whom designer Hermes' created the Birkin Bag for) started an off-screen romance that lasted for an eleven-year marriage and saw the release of the duet Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus (""I love you... me neither") which was a Number One hit even though it was banned for Birkin's simulating an orgasm as part of the song.

Two disc special, eng subs, couldn't have made me happier. This film is a classic. The second disc includes interviews from the time of the film and long after!

This is the best Serge Gainsbourg film ever, and perhaps the only good one.

The late 1960's are screamed out in the decor and in the storyline.
Every Serge Gainsbourg fan would love this film, it is far better than the silly "Heroic Life" biographic film made about him.

Even people sho don't like Serge Gainsbourg but like quirky French films from the era would enjoy this. The plot looks overly simple - older man falls for younger woman, but starts to have problems getting a divorce from his wife. I don't want to spoil the ending.
Under the surface the film makes a point about advertising unrealistic dreams, fakery and infidelity.

NOTE TO POTENTIAL UK BUYERS: Though listed as region code 1 - this plays fine on a region code 2 DVD Player!

The world-famous affair that would begin with this movie that would create two legends in their own lifetime; those of Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin, would still prove popular more than forty years on! This is a two disc set which includes bonus material - all done with English subtitles (including the movie itself) which is a great pity, since I would have expected such a great and iconic movie to have been `dubbed' for English audiences by now - perhaps for those excepting who may think it would spoil the authenticity perhaps, but it would have certainly helped to reach a much wider audience.

I do not normally take to movies with subtitles, they can be so distracting - especially when there is a lot of dialogue. As it is, this is just fine! Accompanied throughout by Serge's beautiful title theme song that haunts the viewer long after the movie has ended! There are some beautiful scenes too in this picture - beautifully shot - my favourite being the one as they're travelling in the car to the great theme song. The story is quite strong, but I'm afraid the poor David and Dado characters do not stand a chance against the charms of the handsome, charismatic and sexy Serge here; they're simply too young, inexperienced and rather boyish for a young woman so in love with a much older man...

Whenever I think of Jane Birkin, I see her with that iconic wicker basket she carries in this movie. She and Serge were more than the legendary song `Je T'aime'; sung by a couple who would be forever attached by wires it would seem for the rest of their lives - and this film is where it all started!
