Anouk Aimée


She is the daughter of the actress Geneviève Sorya. In 1948 she played the part of Juliette in The Lovers of Verona (1949). In the following years (fifties and beginning sixties) she made various films (e.g. Modigliani of Montparnasse (1958) and La Dolce Vita (1960)) but had only with Lola (1961) of Jacques Demy and A Man and a Woman (1966) of Claude Lelouch major success. With the latter she had the chance to establish herself in America but did not use this opportunity. Therefore she was only participating in second row productions in Europe and America.
