Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot: Bonnie and Clyde

Petula Clark has said of Serge Gainsbourg:
"I loved his voice and that sort of ugly handsome look. ... He was very clever, very charming, I understand why he had all those lovely ladies."
And none came lovelier than Brigitte Bardot.

Bonnie And Clyde and its video come over as a musical version of the Jean-Luc Godard film A Bout de Souffle.

It was actually inspired by "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde," a poem written by Bonnie Parker herself.
