Anna Karina, director Jean-Luc Godard’s muse, was a Danish film actress known for her roles in films such as ‘The Little Soldier’, ‘A Woman is a Woman’, and ‘Vivre sa vie’. Godard’s name is often associated with the New Wave French film movement. The photo above was taken at the 15th Cannes Film Festival in 1962, when the actress and the director were still married.
