Nor is it a heroic biography to distract us from our real life with our real joys, sorrows, hopes and delusions, to comfort us that in the end, our own life is good enough, that we shouldn’t grasp for the moon. It is not one more boring lesson telling us how we ought to conduct our lives.
The powerful entrepreneur and founder of the ultra chic Delance Swiss Watches for women, the fighter, the mother, the friend. As we follow her story, we get enthusiastic when as a child, Giselle, so alive and determined, spreads her thousand ideas and talents like wings; we admire the teen when she dares to cross the line of the so conservative and provincial Swiss society conventions of the fifties; we suffer with the young adult when fate persists to cut her momentum off, tries to kill her vision and forces her to put her ambitions on hold; and we applaud when eventually success and fame reward the exceptional destiny of the mature woman.
