The Long Winding Road to You
“I had to come such a long way to find you”, murmurs Marie Christine Barrault in Roger Vadim’s ear on the day of their wedding. A long path to find this unique, profound, passionate and endless love…
Marie Christine Barrault tells the story of her path to love in this book, from the dazzlements of youth to her discovery of theatre, from her first loves to her first encounter with Roger Vadim. The path of an actress who has a special love for the more beautiful texts in her repertoire – Claudel, Rilke – and who doesn’t think twice before taking risks, always passionate about a vocation that she lives and breathes.
When she meets Roger Vadim, she is in her forties, and doesn’t believe that love is in her cards anymore. He is sixty years old, and has loved more women than many a man’s share. And together, after boundless, reckless love story after another, they jump in headfirst into this adventure, an intense, completely new, exclusive and transporting experience.
A passion that will unite them until Roger Vadim’s death, ten years ago.
A moving and radiant tale.
