"I really wanted a book that retraced my acting career in photography, a long career of more than half a century. [...] This book, it seemed to me, should be like a running train: the Orient Express or the Trans-Siberian, the reader who embark on a long voyage immobile "...

Bernadette Lafont saw her desire be fulfilled. With the complicity of  Bernard Bastide, film historian and companion, she evokes here her disturbing voice as well as her instinctive, vital, and compelling passion for film. She has not forgotten her long career, and remembers everything and everyone or those she simply rubbed shoulders with, and the colors or the tastes of all these shootings that shed light on her life. All while staying true to her cheeky, ironic, tender and sensual self. Always amazed to have crossed her "life of film" with the same spontaneity, the same insolent freshness, the same greed. The same killer smile.

Bernadette Lafont, une vie de cinéma  is not only a reference book, nor is it a sensible illustrated biography of an actress who resembles no other person but herself. This book not only pays homage to the actress, it is also the testimony of a free woman who has dedicated her body and soul to the seventh art.
