Anne-Marie Mille, an aging actress, reviews her life. She tells of a dreary youth in the French province, of childlike admiration for the actors in her hometown and the luck of being hired as an actress at a Parisian suburban theatre: "On stage I was sometimes Anne-Marie the Beauty".
There she was happy, but the great success was granted to her. She envies her late friend and colleague Gigi, who always got bigger roles, met famous lovers, and even made it into films, while Anne-Marie's husband bores her and her son gets on her nerves.
But Anne-Marie survived Gigi and most of her companions, reflects on her life and encounters and re-evaluates them.
Yasmina Reza draws the graceful portrait of an aging woman with her wistful and whimsical monologue, written expressly for a man.
A look back at a life between stage and reality, wishful thinking and reality, illusion and depression.
