Personal Quote:

In American cinema you find handsome men, whereas in French cinema you find male stars who are usually not very good looking at all. Fifty years from now, when people watch French movies and see these absolutely ravishing actresses who fall head over heels in love with Gérard Depardieu, they'll shake their heads and wonder what exactly was wrong with France.

Trivia:

Wrote her first novel "L'Homme Facile" at the age of 17, but was barred from the French system of book classification, which classified it as 18+ readership. See more »

Dramas that explore female sexuality in a clinical, bleak style and with unconventional explicitness.
