Anicée Alvina Biography

Anicée Alvina, also known as Anicée Schahmaneche (b. Anicée Shahmanesh or Anicee Schahmane on 28 January 1953, Boulogne-Billancourt, France - d. 11 November 2006, Boncourt, Eure et Loir, France from cancer) was a French singer and actress.

Born to a French mother and an Iranian father, Anicée made her first movie appearance in Elle boit pas, elle fume pas, elle drague pas, mais... elle cause ! in 1970 and became famous for her lead roles in Glissements progressifs du plaisir (1974) and Le Jeu avec le feu, two movies directed by Alain Robbe-Grillet. She starred in the 1971 Lewis Gilbert film Friends, whose soundtrack helped launch the singing and songwriting careers of Elton John and Bernie Taupin. These three lead roles were notable for their nudity, although Alvina had very good acting qualities.

She played a femme fatale in the Jacques Doniol-Valcroze movie where she seduces Jacques Weber. She then appeared in films directed by Gérard Blain and Bernard Queysanne, among others.

She had the lead role in the TV comedy Les 400 coups de Virginie which was shown on TF1 in 1979.
