Synopsis

Sarah Bernhardt lived for 78 years, burning up every second, interpreting every moment of her life, dying a thousand times on stage, while crying or laughing. We know her as a melodramatic, dark, dreamlike woman: but what do we know about the joyful, whimsical, manipulative, and amusingly macabre woman? Behind the public woman, the world’s first star of entertainment, lies a more complex woman. Using high quality archives, re-enactments and animation, this film paints a portrait of the elusive Sarah Bernhardt.
