Movie Info

This drama with incestual nuances features singer-songwriter turned director Serge Gainsbourg as Stan, a screenwriter who has seen much better days. He is currently agonizing over his daughter, Charlotte (Charlotte Gainsbourg). Charlotte blames him for the death of her mother in an accident. Stan vents his feelings on anyone who will listen -- a gay friend, a low-life movie producer, a repulsive prostitute, and two young women his daughter's age. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Charlotte for Ever

This is definitely one of the weirdest films I've ever seen in tone, humor, lighting, direction, musical cues and overall point. From the bizarre unexplained characters who drift in and out of the house that are always inexplicably weeping, to the constant flashbacks to the oil tanker explosion (which I got the sense they just wanted to milk for all it was worth because I'm sure it was expensive to shoot), to the questionable father/daughter half naked bed hangouts, to the repetitious 80s smooth jazz music that started and stopped whenever there was a young female behind to show bopping to it in close up.... This movie it's nuts. To be honest, it just felt like a hate letter from Serge to himself. He's shows himself as unattractive, if not downright disgusting; from vomit to snot to peeing, he only stops short of showing himself taking a shit, but even then they talk about it enough you wouldn't notice. What really mystifies me is how he managed to get so many people to make this film with him... though I'm sure the mood on set was that of amused bewilderment-- "can you believe what they're giving us money to make?"
