Two years after recording the notorious duet “Lemon Incest” with his daughter Charlotte, Serge Gainsbourg again courted controversy when he cast her at age 14 in this provocative tale. He plays Stan, a washed-up screenwriter wallowing in despair and alcoholism after his wife’s death. His only meaningful relationship is with his teen daughter, whose budding sexuality proves a constant temptation. Abetted by Charlotte’s startlingly mature performance and Serge’s cool, breathy soundtrack, the daringly suggestive Charlotte For Ever is an essential document in the boundary-pushing musician’s creation of his own mythology.
