The daughter of an actor and actress, Anouk Aimée made her first film appearance at the age of 14 in La Maison sous la mer (1946; “The House on the Sea”). After making an impression as a Juliet figure in the 1948 film Les Amants de Vérone (The Lovers of Verona), a role written especially for her by Jacques Prévert, she won acclaim for her performances in Federico Fellini's La dolce vita (1960; “The Sweet Life”) and Otto e mezzo (1963; 8 12).

Aimée, an aloof but alluring presence on the screen, was most widely known for her role as a woman with a tragic past in Claude Lelouch's popular Un Homme et une femme (1966; A Man and a Woman). The role was reprised in Un homme et une femme, vingt ans déj (1986; “A Man and a Woman, Twenty Years Later”). Among her best-known films are Golden Salamander (1949) and Lola (1960).
