Romy Schneider Exhibition: Tribute to celebrated actress at the Cinema Palace in Brussels

“Romy Schneider, Austrian-Born Screen Actress, Dead At 43.” That’s how Variety, one of America’s leading trade papers, announced the death of actress Romy Schneider on June 2, 1982, after a cardiac arrest in her Paris apartment four days earlier had killed her totally unexpectedly.

Although she passed away more than forty years ago, her name still sounds very familiar—even to people who weren’t even born when she was still making films. And that was her great passion: she made many films, sometimes one after another. They made her a star without her ever striving to be a star. Playing a character never became a routine job; it always remained a challenge, and she never took a new film for granted. Fortunately, she left behind a rich film legacy that stood the test of time and, even more so, continues to appeal to the imagination.

After all, Romy Schneider has always been a trendy and a popular actress, and when people still talk about her with such praise so many years after she passed away, it makes her work and her performances all the more worthwhile and meaningful. She is no longer a popular actress now—those days are over—simply because, during the course of her absence in the past four decades, new actresses came on board and became the next generation’s leading ladies. But now Schneider has simply become a legend in the film world, like Arletty or Simone Signoret, and is now appreciated mainly by a cinephile audience. She can always rely on their continued interest and appreciation. That is, without a doubt, a merit that makes her pretty unique in her own way.

Romy Schneider’s exhibition at the Cinema Palace in Brussel | Film Talk

Those are enough reasons for the Cinema Palace in Brussels to pay a heartwarming tribute to this unforgettable actress. Last year, the Cinémathèque française already organized an exhibition about her life and work, and the good news is that now the Cinema Palace is fully committed to it for the next three months. So now you can go to Brussels and get a very clear picture and an accurate impression of the actress that Romy Schneider used to be. An exhibition that is worth (re)discovering her as an actress. Mission accomplished.

In addition to the exhibition, which runs from March 24 to June 25, there is also an extensive retrospective of her films at the Cinema Palace. Some prominent guests will present films with Romy Schneider: on Thursday, March 30, film director and Oscar winner Costa-Gavras will introduce “Clair de femme” (1979), the only film the august filmmaker did with Romy Schneider. On Tuesday, April 4, Sarah Baisini, Romy Schneider’s daughter, will present “César et Rosalie” (1972) to the audience. Two days later, on April 6, the Belgian and international actress Lubna Azabal will explain what makes “Le vieux fusil” (1975) such a precious film, and on April 12, it’s director Joachim Lafosse’s turn as he will present “L’enfer d’Henri-Georges Clouzot” (2009).

Additional guest speakers may be added during the retrospective, depending on availability. It is, therefore, best to check possible updates on the exhibition’s website.

The Cinema Palace exhibition unveils a fascinating portrait of Romy Schneider’s career. It points out that she can be considered the first European actress as she made films in German, French, Italian, and English decades ago; it turned her into an actress avant la lettre who helped put the concept of world cinema on the map. That is why her role as an actress is so relevant, and she was a very passionate actress who lived for her profession and made four to even five films a year. This is all perfectly and very well balanced in the exhibition. It is as if the charming and graceful actress takes you by the hand, shows you her entire body of work, and how she wrote film history in her own personal way.

This is illustrated by numerous photos with captions in Dutch, French, and English. The structure of the exhibition is organized both chronologically and thematically and also highlights her collaboration with directors she worked with, from Luchino Visconti to Orson Welles, from Otto Preminger to Claude Sautet. There is a huge amount of exclusive and personal memorabilia to admire, such as professional correspondence (notes, letters, a telegram…), addressed to director Claude Sautet, among others, and written in her own spontaneous, frank, and frivolous style, which illustrates how strong the bond between those two must have been. There are also dresses from some of her films, and the Césars she won as Best Actress for her roles in “L’important c’est d’aimer” (1975) and “Une histoire simple” (1978).

She made five films with actor Alain Delon: “Christine” (1958), “Plein soleil” (1960), “L’amour à la mer” (1965), “La piscine” (1969), and “The Assassination of Trotsky ” (1972). Their collaboration is also a file rouge that runs through her work and the exhibition.

Born in 1938, Romy Schneider made her name as a teenager—and as the daughter of actress Magda Schneider—with three “Sissi” films (1955-1957), and as her career evolved, she became an international actress in the 1960s who appeared in several English-language films. She also worked in Hollywood alongside Jack Lemmon (“Good Neighbor Sam,” 1964), and later with actors such as Peter Sellers and Peter O’Toole (“What’s New, Pussycat?” from 1965), Richard Burton (“The Assassination of Trotsky,” 1972) and Audrey Hepburn (“Bloodline,” 1979). But the audience will remember her most of all as a leading actress in French cinema. After all, she made most of her films in France, where she worked with her favorite director and screenwriter, Claude Sautet (1924-2000). They made five films together: “Les choses de la vie” (1970), “Max et les ferailleurs” (1971), “César et Rosalie” (1972), “Mado” (1975), and “Une histoire simple” (1978).

Finally, although Romy Schneider died of a cardiac arrest on May 29, 1982, it is believed that her sudden death resulted from the tragedy that happened to her son David Meyen in 1981 when he died in an accident at age 14.

1982 was very tough for the film world as several talented actors died prematurely. Natalie Wood had died unexpectedly six months earlier, in November 1981, at the age of 43; John Belushi died in March 1982, aged 33; German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder in June 1982 at age 37; the French actor Patrick Dewaere in July of that year, when he turned 35. Grace Kelly was 52 when she died in November 1982 after a car accident.
