Autumn’s already flooding-in after a rather indifferent English summer. Here’s something to hopefully cheer things up a bit – a video tribute to prolific actress and one of the most recognisable faces from France, the beautiful and talented Emmanuelle Béart.
One couldn’t fit in Ms. Béart’s entire filmography in a tribute for very obvious reasons, but at least some of the ones used are memorable, it covers a decent span of her career.
Ça commence par la fin – (husband) Michaël Cohen
- La Répétition – Catherine Corsini
- Les Égarés – André Téchiné
- Histoire de Marie et Julien – Jacques Rivette
- Manon des Sources – Claude Berri
La Belle Noiseuse – Jacques Rivette
The Soundtrack is one I’d fallen in love with ever since I saw the François Truffaut classic “Jules et Jim” some twenty years ago. Legendary Jeanne Moreau herself sang the utterly charming “Le tourbillon de la vie”, which by the way also encapsulates that entire film. Odd choice, perhaps, but what better way to serenade a gorgeous and talented actress than by another exemplary actress. Inspired me nevertheless… 🙂
