ANOUK AIMEE

Actress

Revealed by "A man and a woman"

Daughter of actress Geneviève Sorya, the actress debuted in cinema at the age of 14. She acquired notoriety thanks to Jacques Prévert who wrote a tailor-made role for her in "Les amants de Verona", a film by Cayatte. Fellini and Jacques Demy offer him leading characters, but it is Claude Lelouch with A man and a woman filmed in Deauville, which makes its cinematographic couple with Jean-Louis Trintignant mythical all over the world. His notoriety earned him an international career with George Cukor, Robert Altman or Sydney Lumet.

An interpretation prize in 1980 at the Cannes Film Festival for his interpretation in Marco Bellochio's film “The jump in the void”, an honorary César in 2002 and a Golden Bear punctuate an impressive career. Icon of the new wave, Anouk Aimée remains timeless.
