MARIANNE FAITHFUL

Marianne Faithfull has always been a personification of her time. Pure ingénue at the beginning of the ’60s, the hippie chick by the end, then the heroin girl at the beginning of ’70s.

Since the age of 11, when she first began to sing folk songs with her friend, Sally, in the convent at Reading, she has been in love with the simple earthy music.

Directed in 1968 by Jack Cardiff, Marianne Faithfull is a stunner in her role as a discontented young newlywed. The film photography is gorgeous and her beauty fits right along with it, as she rides from Switzerland to Germany, to see her lover played by Alain Delon, who gave her the bike as a “wedding gift”.

Marianne Faithfull had been labeled as a one-hit wonder when she reappeared in 1979 to shock everyone with this dark masterpiece, “Broken English”.
