Serge sings Charles

In the upcoming (if you live outside of France, that is) Gainsbourg movie Vie Heroique, you see Eric Elmosnino in his superbe role as Serge sing Parce Que a few times. He uses this song by Aznavour to seduce his first wife Elisabeth, and later on to impress Juliette Gréco (one of the many brilliant scenes in the movie). Many scenes in the movie are based on theory (and Serge's exaggerated stories) rather than historical facts, but his use of Parce Que doesn't seem odd to me. He sang the song later in his life on tv, and that version ended up on a Inédits-compilation. I just found out there's a video on YT:

Serge Gainsbourg - Parce Que
Eric Elmosnino - Parce Que
