Charlotte Gainsbourg offers a truthful, touching, intimate portrait of her mother, Jane Birkin, the legendary British model, singer and actor. Looking back at their lives together in a series of soft-spoken, extremely personal mother-daughter conversations, these two celebrated women touch on Birkin’s extraordinary lives with her three partners — British composer John Barry, French singer/songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, and French filmmaker Jacques Doillon. This spare, delicate portrait of a fascinating – now 76-year-old mother by a daughter who clearly cherishes her – emerges as a frank portrayal of two very human, insecure, talented women, as they take stock of both the joys and the tragedies they have shared over the years. Official selection Cannes Film Festival 2021.
The film is followed by a Q&A with Charlotte Gainsbourg moderated by journalist and writer Christina Newland
"Moving, unsentimental and gently provocative. "
