It’s 1968 and at the student riots in Paris, the cry is “Under the pavement, the beach!” The lawless antics of Bonnie and Clyde strike a chord with a revolutionary wave of youthful rebellion… This film clip of the duet by Serge Gainsbourg & siren Bridget Bardot captures a sexy, restless energy and a certain pathos.

Gainsbourg fans can do a walk-by the house he shared with Jane Birkin in the sixth arrondissement at (5 Rue de Verneuil, 75006) which is now covered in graffitis or pay hommage to him at Montparnasse Cemetary (3 boulevard Edgard Quinet, 75014) where he is to be found with other free thinkers – Sartre, Beauvoir, Baudelaire to name a few.
