You think you know Arletty but you’re wrong. The “môme de Courbevoie”, born in 1898, observed the century with an amused, ironic and biting curiosity…She was the muse of painters – Van Dongen, Kisling, Braque, Matisse – and inspired the great couturiers and filmmakers – from Guitry to Carné.
Four years of research in Italy, Germany and France, candid confidences made by Arletty in the evening of her life, interviews with those close to her, and unpublished documents have made it possible to reconstruct with precision this extraordinary life, to refine the portrait of the woman who remains forever the « Garance des Enfants du paradis ».
