At the height of her stardom, Romy Schneider gave an interview to Alice Schwarzer in which she recounts her youth and her career, a very emotional and revealing testimony. Forty years later, Alice gave Patrick Jeudy the audio tapes of this conversation and steps back into the limelight to tell us about this unique night – during which Romy Schneider shed a raw light on her life. It forms the basis for this documentary film. The actress describes her dichotomy as a woman and film icon between Germany and France. Among other things, she complains that as "Sissi" actress she was made into a projection screen that no longer had anything to do with her true self.
