Serge & Gillian out for a drive

What a great combo! Serge Gainsbourg and Gillian Hills in a cool Peugeot Alpine singing their duet “Une petite tasse d’anxiét&#233”. Oh, and that groovy organ!

Serge ‘reluctantly’ gives a lift to Gillian who is late for school. He says he’s taking her to the forest to see if she’s scared of him. She eventually gets out of the car and tells him to wait for her after school. He scoffs at that, but he has no choice: she grabbed his keys.
