“Thegreatest freedom is to be yourself. ” (Jeanne Moreau)

Jeanne Moreau shaped the screen and international cinema of the 20th century like few other actresses of her era; Orson Welles revered her as an exceptional mimin.

Moreau shot with the great directors of the Nouvelle Vague and auteur cinema such as Louis Malle (her discoverer), François Truffaut, Luis Buñuel, Michelangelo Antonioni, R. W. Fassbinder and Wim Wenders. She was a close friend of Marguerite Duras, the companion of Pierre Cardin and the lover of Peter Handke.

Jens Rosteck paints a fascinating, multi-faceted portrait of this daring artist and actress who served as a role model for many women: emancipated, wise, abysmal, rebellious, majestic and erotic in the extreme. The reading is complemented by photos of Jeanne Moreau and musical recordings.
