German actress. Filmed in the movies: the trilogy "Sissi", "Christine," "Boccaccio 70", "Process", "Ludwig", "Train", "The main thing - love," "old gun" "Cesar and Rosalie," "Woman in the Window," "Simple Story", "Live coverage of the death, etc.

Rosemarie Magdalena Alba-Retta (Schneider) was born September 23, 1938 in Vienna. Her parents, Alba, Retta Wolff and Magda Schneider, were actors. They divorced when Romy was seven years old.

To support a family (with Romy was the younger brother of Wolf-Dieter), Magda Schneider returned to the operetta and the beginning of the German Province of the wheel. In 1949, she placed the daughter in a Catholic school, led the Order of Augustinian nuns. Romy Schneider with childhood dreams of becoming an actress. Thirteen girl she wrote in her diary: "Music, theater, cinema, travel, art. These five words make my theatrical blood boil. "

In July 1953, graduated from Catholic school Romy and returned home. And soon through the mother acted in the episode in the movie "When zatsvetet white lilacs. She then played a big role in the band of Kurt Hoffmann "Fireworks", which actually starts a separate creative biography of Romy Schneider in the movie.

In 1954, director Ernst Marishka was going to shoot a picture of the young English Queen Victoria. The main role in the film "Youth Queen", he entrusted the Romy Schneider. The film was a huge success.

Elated, Marishka starts trilogy on life the last Austrian empress Elisabeth (the people loved her and called Sissy). The first movie trilogy called "Sissi" and was released in 1955. In terms of number of visits "Sissi" exceeded even the American movie "Gone With the Wind." The secret of success Marishki was that he found a performer whose face exactly match the image of idealized people Empress. Romy Schneider became a star of German cinema. Issued two more series - Sissi, a young Empress "(1956) and" Sissy, the fate of the Empress "(1957). Now, the name synonymous with the name of Sissi Romy Schneider. The actress had to take on any role that promised relief from the image of the Austrian empress. But to do so was not easy. However, in the film "Girls in uniform" (1958) she was able to prove to many that it may play a complex dramatic role.

The idea of filming "Christine" is fully owned by Magda Schneider. She was one of the most popular actress of German and Austrian cinema. Many years ago, among the films screening plays Magda was "Flirt." Remake of the tape has agreed to make a French film director Gaspar Ui. The role of Christine served Romy Schneider, his beloved France - Alain Delon.

The shooting comes to an end, and Romy first admitted Alain love. Magda Romy wrote a letter to the daughter begged only one - to legitimize the relationship with Alain! March 22, 1959 was affiance Schneider and Delon.

In Paris, despite his wealth and fame, she felt just a little provintsialkoy. It confuses intellectual disputes frequenters of fashionable cafes - directors and actors of the new French cinema.

In March 1961, Delon and Romy transferred his affection for the theatrical stage. They played in the performance of Luchino Visconti.

In 1960, the famous producer Carlo Ponti conceived to create kinosbornik "Boccaccio 70". One of the stories put Visconti (in Maupassant story "The edge of the bed"). Although "Boccaccio 70" is the twentieth track in the movie Romy Schneider playing in Visconti, she studied not only the essence of the profession, but her high dignity.

Previously, she appeared on the set of no more than tipazhnoy performer, pretty, of course, mobile.

Her liveliness poludetskuyu Visconti developed in dramatic temperament. He gave her to understand what the role of the second plan. Finally, he taught her the internal concentration of the game. Since then, her roles have been resilient as a convex, pulled from the cavities and unimportant occurrences. Schneider lives gratefully remembered "universities Seniora Luchino.

Romy again finds success, but as a serious dramatic actress. On stage, she plays the role of Nina Zarechny in "The Seagull." The magazine Paris magazine wrote: "This small avstriyachka done a lot for the triumph of a masterpiece of Russian playwright in the French scene. Dolphins Seyring sophistication, it has put spontaneity. Its strength - the sincerity and immediacy. "

After the "Seagull" with Romy negotiated several French theaters, but she accepted the offer of Orson Wells play the role of servant in the film process. " On stage, she no longer returned.

"Orson tried to make me something totally new - the actress said. - I played quite nezagrimirovannoy, neprichesannoy, and when he saw himself on screen, it just was taken aback at first. Difficult to describe in detail that happened to me at that time. I just suddenly rose to a new level. "

Snyavshis in a small role in Otto Premindzhera, in 1963, Schneider concludes a contract with a seven-year Hollywood and goes to the States, and Delon remained in France. At the assignation, it flies in an airplane, and they spend weekends together in Europe. Her girlfriend, the celebrated writer Francoise Sagan, no doubt: "Romy gave all the world to become the wife of Alan. He was a man of her life. "

Alas, how they differ. In Hollywood Romy gets a letter from Delon: "Adyu! I return to you freedom and you leave your heart! "In August 1964 the first message on the official marriage between Alain Delone and actress Natalie Barthelemy ...

Life continued. After breaking with Delone Romy to reconcile with her parents and was more often at home.

Her husband becomes a playwright Gary Mayen (for the marriage, he left a woman who lived 12 years). The wedding was held in spring 1966 on, when Romy was already at the fifth month of pregnancy. She wrote in those days: "The years spent with Alain, were wild, insane. With Harry, I eventually calmed down. The nine months I have not removed, but I do not have that painful feeling of emptiness, which is usually encountered. Now I can even imagine that one day leave of the film ... "Romy gave birth to a wonderful boy, David.

In 1968, Alain Delon suddenly asked Schneider to play in his new movie "Swimming Pool". Allen threw the family is in crisis and ... He said Jacques Dereyu, director of "Swimming Pool", which in the role of his partner, he sees only Romy. August 12, Snyder flew to France.

According to critics, "Swimming Pool" was the first film, the actress submitted a fully mature, triumphant beauty. The film has been sold to many European countries.

Claude Sote manages to get her in his picture of "little nothings of life."

Romy Schneider in one and a half years, took part in six movies. She was on the brink of physical exhaustion. Between her and her husband growing alienation. Harry Mayen once prosperous playwright and director, and drop rapidly spivaetsya. Haggard images Romy increasingly makes him company. However, she refuses, without any explanation from the excellent scenarios.

She did not want removed in the "men and women", "Last Tango in Paris". But when Delon invites her tiny role in prodyusiruemom them "murder Trotsky" (1972), she breaks away from all the affairs and mchitsya him to Mexico!

Luchino Visconti makes her a little gift - invite to a small but extremely important role of Elisabeth of Austria in the film "Ludwig" (1972). Romy Schneider coped with his task brilliantly.

After the "Ludwig" again shot Claude Sote. In the painting "Cesar and Rosalie" partner Romy was famous Yves Montand. As pointed out by critics, thanks to Schneider movie becomes the parable of the enigmatic woman′s soul, the eternal changeability, drawn to the unknown. The film was incredible spectator success, but the magazine Paris-Match "proclaimed Romy Schneider, the lead star of French cinema!

But the true pinnacle of her biography, it was destined to become a picture of "Money Train" (1973) Grand Defera telling about the first days of occupation of France by German troops. "The role of Anne - the best that I have been asked in recent years. I′m at home it can be seen as a betrayal, because I am German, play Jew, who falls in love in French. But I wanted to draw attention to National Socialism, which still exists in Germany, "- said the actress.

In 1975, Romy Schneider took part in the movie A. Zhulavskogo "The main thing - love." This is a story about love, bitterness, self, linking the two dissuade people - squalid actress Nadine Chevalier (Schneider) and photographer Servosa Monta (test). Life Nadine recalls wreckage after the shipwreck, - shared their impressions Romy. - I feel a close connection with it - because it is visited in her position. Films of this type are moving ahead much stronger than the rest. " For the role in this movie, Schneider was awarded the prize "Cesar".
