Charlotte Gainsbourg has been for the last few years as active as ever. Her last major film has just been released, Melancholia, of course, which followed Confession of a Child of the Century and the Antichrist and lets not forget about that beautiful musical collaboration with Beck which was received tremendously well by erm, everyone.
This softly spoken lady has the voice of a lonesome and lost child. She doesn't speak; she whispers, and when your hear her it gives you shivers down your spine, either because it scares you or turns you on. In her last film roles she proved that she is a woman who expresses her sexuality in, lets say, a different way. In a desperate and brutal way, in a rancorous and deranged way - the Antichrist.

Even as a child Charlotte was rather majestically raunchy, perhaps due to her being used as a sexual being/protagonist when she was as young as 12. In the song Lemon Incest she sings with her dad a song that would be attacked for glamorising paedophilia and incest by its innuendos, perhaps suggesting physical love between father and daughter? They are the Gainsbourgs, of course it was not sexual. She was also used by her uncle

Charlotte is a grown woman now but I don't think that her unorthodox ways will ever cease to make some people jump out of our seats, and make boys' toys pulse out of their pants.
