After a first exhibition dedicated to the Brigitte Bardot myth, Espace Landowski -- Boulogne-Billancourt welcomes a new exhibition about one of the biggest legends of cinema: Romy Schneider.
Romy Schneider was a fascinating actress due to her fragility and determination. This exhibition, built on a chronological basis, plunges visitors deep into the life and career of the actress, who by the late 1950s no longer wanted to be Sissi, and by the 1970s was a celebrated star of French cinema.
The Austrian-born German actress bemoaned her roles in Germany and went to Paris to play women who did justice to her acting abilities and expectations. She settled in France at the beginning of the 1970s, where she advanced to be one of the biggest stars of French cinema. She won several awards and made films with nearly all the great directors and actors of that period. Romy Schneider died in Paris in May 1982.
The exhibit will present new documents, numerous photographs, press images, original posters, film stills, personal objects and costumes. Viewers will be immersed in the fate of an exceptional woman through correspondence and fan souvenirs that reflect the cult worship that Romy Schneider inspired from an early age and as well as the role she played in the Franco-German reconciliation.
