Rosemarie Retty Albach - better known as Romy Schneider - born on the 23 September 1938 as a daughter of the famous German actress Magda Schneider and actor Wolf Albach Retty has been one of the most popular actresses of Europena cinema. She fascinated her fans when she was still alive and she does the same, long after her tragic sudden death, when an entirely different generation can deservedly call her an icon of 'cinema grandee.' What lies in the uniqueness of this woman? What made a humble Bavarian princess 'Kaiserin Von Oesterreich' (empress of Austria) of the 1900s? What made a young actress of SISSI Trilogy an international celebrity? Is it her genius, her unusual talent? Or is it, apart from that, her SINCERE HEART for the audience? The question will certainly occur not so easy to answer as Romy's entire life and career were highly sophisticated. Yet, some answers may be provided by this biopic, the first 'Spielfilm' (movie with cast) about Romy Schneider.
