Serge Gainsbourg Related: Game of Love promo leaflet

It’s pretty hard to find British promo materials for Serge Gainsbourg related films, but from time to time something crops up.  I’ve had this promo brochure for Jacques Doniol-Valcroze’s L’Eau à la Bouche (known as The Game of Love in the UK) since the early 1990s but just thought I’d finally share it.  Interesting to note that it was sold over here as a “sexy” film – “It’s strip tease all the way” – I don’t recall it being that bad, but this was the late 1950s after all.  AND, it was X rated for some reason or other, so maybe I blinked during the naughty bits.  Serge gets his mention for the music and, surprisingly, his name is spelt correctly.

There were other British promotional materials available, although I’ve not found any yet:

About tinynoggin

I love films (anything from exploitation stuff to stylish Eastern European cinema, but I'm not really into blockbusters and modern Hollywood), music (Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Michel Polnareff, Left Banke, Francoise Hardy, The Seeds, Love, The Zombies, etc) and books (Kurt Vonnegut, Julian Maclaren-Ross, Michel Houellebecq, Patrick Hamilton, Alan Sillitoe, and more). I take photographs with my Lomography Diana F plus or my Olympus Trip and like making stuff in my spare time.
