Jeanne Moreau

She was one of the most famous French actresses of her time. Awarded the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress, the BAFTA Award for Best Foreign Actress and the César Award for Best Actress, she played in more than 130 films, from 1949 to 2015.
Her role in Elevator to the Gallows (1958), directed by Louis Malle, made her an icon; nobody can forget her slow and melancholic wandering in the streets, on Miles Davis’s music.
If François Truffaut said she was “the greatest lover from cinema”, Jeanne Moreau worked with the most famous movie makers: Antonioni, Welles, Buñuel, Losey, Ozon, Varda, Duras, Brook…
When she passed away, on 31st July 2017, she left the image of a brave and sulfurous woman. But who really was Jeanne Moreau?
A sensitive and accurate portray, including original testimonies, written by Jocelyne Sauvard, the biographer of great feminine figures of our times.
