The writer Françoise Sagan (1935-2004) had everything you could wish for: love, success, money, fame. At 19, she became a household name with her first book, Bonjour Tristesse. She never stopped writing and living with elegance, sincerity and above all a freedom that many reproached her for.
Questioned jointly by her only son, Denis Westhoff, and the director, the woman that was Sagan is at the heart of this film.
An intimate journey through the archives, leading us closer to the truth behind a myth.
An intimate and analytical portrait of a modern icon. A story so excessive, impossible, and irreverent that it both seduces and infuriates us.

"They tell us that the main thing is to love. I think the main thing is to be loved above all”
Françoise Sagan 1992
