Sylvie Testud plays the title role of French author Françoise Sagan (1935 – 2004), literary wunderkind of the grande nation. Sagan wrote her worldwide success “Bonjour Tristesse” (1954) when she was but 18 years old, and many films have been made after her novels. “Sagan” is the portrait of a ruptured personality, torn between conformity and rebellion, between drug addiction and a will for freedom, between loneliness and a yearning for love. Much celebrated by French audiences and critics alike.
