Model Anna Karina came to the attention of European filmmakers after appearing in a prize-winning Danish short subject. Relocating to Paris in 1958, Karina turned down more film roles than she accepted. One of her rejections was director Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless (1959); within a year, however, she was living with Godard, and by 1961 they were wed. During her six-year marriage to Godard, Karina appeared in several of his productions (Vivre Sa Vie, Pierrot le Fou etc.), and also played sensuous but ever-so-slightly distant heroines in many of the films of Godard's New-Wave confreres. From all reports, Karina and Godard's relationship was symbiotic; it is certainly no coincidence that both actress and director went into a temporary artistic eclipse after their 1967 breakup. In 1973, Karina took her own auteur plunge by writing, directing, and acting in Vivre Ensemble; five years later, she married another French filmmaker, Daniel Georges-Duval.

Quotes from Anna Karina's Characters
|Marianne Ronoir:||Aweful, isn't it? So anonymous... The say '115 guerrillas' and it doesn't mean a thing to us. Yet each one is a man, and we don't even know who he is. We don't know if he loves his wife, if he has kids, if he prefers movies or plays. We don't know anything. All they say is 115 killed.|
