Anna Prucnal (born December 17th 1940 in Warsaw, Poland) is a noted actress in both cinema and theatre, as well as being a successful singer. Her father, a surgeon, was killed by the Nazis during World War 2. Anna was then raised, along with her sister, solely by her mother, who was of noble descent: being related to Stanislas Leszczyński: an 18th century King of Poland. After studying piano and lyrical song, Anna Prucnal went on to pursue an acting career in Warsaw. She first appeared in a movie at the age of twenty-two years; in the film “Sun and Shadow” (Slăntzeto i siankata), which proved to be a popular release. Anna moved to France in 1970 and embarked upon a theatrical career, appearing in a number of plays by Bertolt Brecht. She worked with many important directors including: Jorge Lavelli, Georges Wilson, Roger Planchon, Jean-Louis Barrault, Marc’O, Petrika Ionesco, Lucian Pintilie and Jacques Lassalle. During this time she also appeared in several notable films, of which the most notorious was “Sweet Movie” - a Dusan Makavejev film - which Polish authorities deemed to be pornographic and anticommunist. As a result, Anna was banned from using her Polish passport by the repressive authorities of the time – effectively exiling her from her homeland. During the 1970s Anna developed her career as a singer: her album “Dream of west, dreams of is” was popular, initially in Paris and then on further tours in Belgium, with the Theater Jean Vilar with Leuwen-the-New, where she is accompanied by Oswald and Nicole d' Andrea on piano, Mylena d' Andrea in an artistic director of the Belgian Marc Lerchs. It went on to be toured worldwide, and finally went to Warsaw in 1989… to celebrate the bicentenary of the French revolution; representing a homecoming of sorts for Anna. In 2002, she wrote a book of memories, Me, which was written in Warsaw .
