Faithfull

Synopsis

Director

Celebrated French actor-director Sandrine Bonnaire presents a frank and moving portrait of a musical icon. Marianne Faithfull’s long and distinguished career has seen her emerge as one of our most enduring and original singer-songwriters. Her story has been well documented, but here Sandrine Bonnaire captures a portrait of rare intimacy and tenderness, encouraging Faithfull to tell her own story through a series of candid interviews.
Combining Faithfull’s reminiscences with archive footage and live performances, Bonnaire charts her remarkable evolution as an artist, from her whirlwind arrival as the crown princess of swinging London with the release of „As Tears Go By“, to an intensely creative period which saw her release five albums and act in three feature films before scandal and addiction left her living on the street. Her return saw her cross genres and art forms with ease, inspiring and collaborating with a new generation influenced by her work.
