    • Synopsis
    • “If you start writing an autobiography you have to go all the
      way” asserted Violette Leduc. Homosexuality, abortion,
      bastardness, she confronted all of the 50s taboo topics
      without any hypocrisy. Her “intrepid sincerity” brought her
      admiration and support from Simone de Beauvoir. Almost 50
      years after the public success of The Bastard, the strength of
      Violette Leduc’s books remains intact, as well as her original
      personality. Inspired by Violette’s poetic style, the film draws
      the portrait of a great author ahead of her time. A hymn to
      freedom and to the magic in words.
