This review is from: Serge Gainsbourg - D'Autres Nouvelles Des Etoiles [DVD]  (DVD)
I can only endorse the positives above with the slightly peevish reservation that SG's superb performance in the Whitney Houston interview is not reproduced (his auction purchase of the rights to Aux armes ... is great though).
Also, tragically, no promotional film seems to have been made for Je T'aime (but '69 Annee Erotique' is gorgeous).
There are treats aplenty here though. All the B&W versions of the stunning 'La Javanaise', the brilliant Karena, Bardot and Birkin collaborations ... the whole ludicrous glory of the Melody Nelson suite shot in video (people always make me rewind to the bit where SG reveals Melody is from 'Soonderland' - ?????). It's such a treat and a real grower.
The evolution of SG's lip synching style alone is worth the £££. And how many 'tabs' can a man smoke in a 2 DVD set?
Great music and in my experience non-SG fans and sceptics are won over v quickly indeed, particularly if you hook your DVD up to a powerful stereo rig and let rip.
