Personal Quote:

Clouds of Sils Maria (2014) deals with an actress, who has to navigate through those different layers of reality - it is pretty much a portrait of Juliette Binoche, as she is today, not a movie with Binoche, but a movie about her. She really brings a lot of herself into this character, so it has fairly deep roots. See more »
