Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus

1976, 88m, 4K DCP, France

Cult icon Serge Gainsbourg wrote, directed, and scored this tale of doomed love between a lonely truck stop waitress (Jane Birkin) and a gay, hunky garbage truck driver (Joe Dallesandro), whose boyfriend (Hugues Quester) becomes increasingly jealous of the two. Sharing the title with Gainsbourg and Birkin’s sexually-explicit 1969 hit pop song, Je T’Aime Moi Non Plus is an equally provocative depiction of sexual gratification told through an unlikely couple.

A film by Serge Gainsbourg

At once iconic and transgressive, Gainsbourg’s queer-eyed view of Americana is trash of the most beautifully bleak kind.”

Genuinely, eccentrically Gainsbourgian”
