Born into an artistic family in French-speaking Switzerland, Anne Bennent has maintained a moderately active career that has been equally divided between the stage, television, and film, and between German- and French-language productions. Her father, Heinz Bennent, appeared in more than 100 film and TV roles over the course of 50 years, including such classics as the German war drama "The Tin Drum" (which Anne's brother also starred in) and François Truffaut's Oscar-nominated "The Last Metro". Bennent made her debut on German television in 1974 at just 11 years old, starring alongside her father, and made her first movie appearance the following year. In 1976, she co-starred with acting legends Jean Seberg and Bruno Ganz in the German drama "The Wild Duck", based on a play by Henrik Ibsen. Nearly a decade later, Bennent found modest glory with a supporting role in the Franco-German romance "Swann in Love", which also starred French legends Fanny Ardant and Alain Delon. But arguably her best project came much later when she co-starred in the 2008 film "Séraphine", the critically acclaimed, multi-award winning biopic about the French painter Séraphine de Senlis.
