She is the daughter of the actress Geneviève Sorya. In 1948 she played the part of Juliette in Les amants de Vérone (1949). In the following years (fifties and beginning sixties) she made various films (e.g. Modigliani of Montparnasse (1958) and La Dolce Vita (1960)) but had only with Lola (1961) of Jacques Demy and A Man and a Woman (1966) of Claude Lelouch major success. With the latter she had the chance to establish herself in America but did not use this opportunity. Therefore she was only participating in second row productions in Europe and America.IMDb Mini Biography By: Volker Boehm

You can only perceive real beauty in a person as they get older.
Oh come on, it hasn't been an unimpressive career. If you look at the number of projects I've been involved in, the people I've worked with ... But it's perhaps true that I haven't always made the right choices. I've taken parts I didn't particularly like because I wanted to work with the director - Altman, for example. But there's very little that I actually regret doing. I had to do most of it, I needed the money. There are one or two things I could have said yes to, though. That's probably true.
It is always better to have a few scenes with a good director, than many scenes with a bad one.
