Biography

Née d'un père allemand et d'une mère française, Christine Maria Kaufmann fit très tôt son entrée dans le monde artistique. Elle fut ballerine à l'Opéra de Munich et commença sa carrière d'actrice de cinéma à sept ans, en 1952, dans une adaptation de Im weißen Rößl (The White Horse Inn, L'auberge du cheval blanc). Le film qui lui apporta la célébrité en Allemagne fut Rosen-Resli, sorti en 1954, alors qu'elle n'avait que neuf ans.

En 1963, elle épousa Tony Curtis qu'elle avait rencontré pendant le tournage de Tarass Boulba (1962). Ils eurent deux filles, Alexandra (née en 1964) et Allegra (née en 1966). Ils divorcèrent en 1968. Kaufmann reprit sa carrière qu'elle avait interrompue pendant son mariage.

Elle devint une vedette internationale quand elle joua au côté de Kirk Douglas dans Ville sans pitié (1961).

Kaufmann est aussi une femme d'affaires avisée faisant la promotion de sa propre ligne de produits cosmétiques qui se vend bien en Allemagne. Elle a signé plusieurs livres sur la beauté et la santé et aussi écrit deux
autobiographies. Elle parle trois langues: l'allemand, l'anglais et le français.

At the Institute for Cybernetics and Future Science ("Institut für Kybernetik und Zukunftsforschung, IKZ"), a new supercomputer hosts a simulation program that includes an artificial world with over 9,000 "identity units" who live as human beings, unaware that their world is just a simulacron. Professor Vollmer (Adrian Hoven), who is technical director of the program, is apparently on the verge of an incredible secret discovery. He becomes increasingly agitated and anti-social before dying in a mysterious accident. His successor, Dr. Fred Stiller, has a discussion with Günther Lause, the security adviser of the institute, when the latter suddenly disappears without trace, before passing on Vollmer's secret to Stiller. More mysterious still is the fact that none of the other IKZ employees seem to have any memory of Lause.
