A journey through Bernadette Lafont’s life, one of the most eccentric actresses in French cinema. Her granddaughters, Anna, Juliette and Solène, revisit Bernadette’s dreams at the family home in the Cevennes region, while her closest friends, Bulle Ogier and Jean-Pierre Kalfon, recall her artistic and human complicity. From the beginning of her career as a pin-up, through her experience as a New Wave sexual freedom icon, or as a drug-dealer grandma in the film Paulette, this is a tribute to an extraordinary life and an artistic odyssey. Cannes, 2016.
