Quotes & Highlights

“[Birkin] brought out [Gainsbourg’s] melodic gift and melancholy side, in songs about the endless mismatches of love and lust, the ravages of time and the sadness that follows bliss.” —New York Times

Description

With her gamine good looks, beguiling demeanor and sweet voice, this radiant mini-skirted girl from Chelsea took London by storm in the ‘60s and ’70s, both as an actress in films such as the acclaimed “Blow-Up,” and as the protege to her late ex-husband, legendary French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg. Together they recorded several albums, including the infamously sexy British chart-topper, "Je T’Aime … Moi Non Plus," banned by the BBC in 1969 for Birkin’s erotically explicit sighs.
