There was never even any discussion of whether Gainsbourg should do any of the more risqué material: “It was obvious I wasn’t going to do it. That was part of the deal and there was no trying to be manipulated in any way, not at all. It was the only way possible. He was very respectful of all the actors and all the porn actors, too. It was all happening in good spirit.”

Even the songs that aren’t about death are disquieting. On Dans Vos Airs, Gainsbourg looks at her children and fears the passing of time, a constant preoccupation. “I don’t feel life is beautiful and all that, I don’t,” she says, still upbeat. Weathering terrible losses doesn’t make the future less scary. “You’re conditioned to be scared every time the telephone rings.” Ageing also holds little appeal. She worries about great film roles drying up. But then she loved transforming into a 70-year-old for her latest film, La Promesse de l’Aube. The wizened reflection felt prophetic. “I won’t be like my mother, I’ll be like my father, as a girl, which is not that nice. But I know I’m taking his looks.”
