Hanne Karin Bayer, born in Denmark, moved to Paris, in 1957, where she began a modelling career and met Coco Chanel who would bestow her with a new glamorous name, Anna Karina. The French film-maker, Jean-Luc Godard, then remarked Anna who would become his wife and one of his fetish actresses, in a Palmolive ad in which her radiant presence and luminous wide eyes mesmerized the director. She starred in several of his films such as Le Petit Soldat and Une Femme est une Femme, in 1960 and Pierrot Le Fou, in 1965. She also appeared in Agnès Varda's Cléo de 5 à 7, Luchino Visconti's L'Etranger and Jacques Rivette's Haut, Bas, Fragile. One of the key figures of the French New Wave, Anna Karina was a passionate lover just like Tolstoy's Anna Karenina.. Everybody should remember her famous line in Godard’s Pierrot Le Fou, saying in whining French, 'Qu’est-ce que je peux faire? J’sais pas quoi faire!'
