A nice movie about the life of the French actress Charlotte Valandrey. Spotted by agent Dominique Besnehard in the 80's, Anne-Charlotte Pascal did a screen test and got a role in Red Kiss, which would won her The Silver Bear Most New Promising Actress in Berlin and a Cesar nomination. Her supposed-to-be bright future was ruined after she found out that she was HIV positive, infected by her musician boyfriend David Chapel. It was not easy for her to find job and boyfriend after that, but she finally got a role in a police TV series with Pierre Mondy (here he played himself) and a husband who received her as she was. One of the great moments in this movie was when Charlotte smiled happily when she saw the sign on the window, a sign which told her that this man still agreed to see her after knowing she was HIV-positive. Aurore Paris who plays young Charlotte is very pretty, a treat for the eye. This is a worth-to-watch autobiography movie about the struggle of an actress, how she convinced her parents that working at cinema was better than getting a school degree, her fight against her illness, which culminated in a heart transplant in 2003, while carrying on to work as an actress.
