    Thanks for these. Just beautiful. I was wondering what she looked like when she was younger. That radiant face in the movie…..

  4. this is luminous yet scary, how time just takes away so much from you.

    Great clip. Thanks for the pointer Ryan.
    I love how she talks about moving beyond being the ingenue! Amazing that some 54 years ago, she was kind of at the stage that Chastain is now, and that at the time her debut came out, none of the other nominees were even a twinkle in their parents’ eyes.

    Her performance in Amour is so much more than just a woman in a bed, as some commenters have reduced it to. The degree of difficulty in the movie reminded me of two other performances – Daniel Day Lewis in My Left Foot, and Mathieu Amalric in Diving Bell & the Butterfly. And they were young men by comparison in terms of the rigour of performing and enacting the part. Trintignant was so wonderful in the movie, but it is her physical transformation that has captured people’s imagination in poignantly depicting the sobering portrait.

  6. This is one of my favorite pictures of her with Eiki Okada
