The French actress became a teen icon of the Parisian punk underground scene before Jean-Jacques Beineix chose her to star, in 1985, in his controversial film, 37,2° le Matin. With her natural and incandescent attitude, she instantly becomes a star and seduces directors and audiences with her troubling sex appeal. She appears in La Sorcière, in 1988 and Les Bois Noirs, in 1989 where her sexy features are highlighted while she little by little manages to impose her unique acting talent and strong temper in closely chosen roles such as in Jacques Doillon's La Vengeance d'une Femme, in 1990, Jim Jarmush's Une Nuit sur Terre, in 1991 and Claire Denis' J'ai pas Sommeil, in 1994. She refuses mainstream films except for Claude Lelouch's La Belle Histoire and is the muse of international art-house cinema, excelling in tormented and sensual environments such as Trouble Everyday, in 2001 and Bye Bye Blondie, opposite Emmanuelle Béart. With an atypical personality, Beatrice Dalle also lives an unsettled existence: dealing with drugs and violence and always falling for the really bad guys. With her strong animal persona, the actress has succeeded in being regarded as one of France most desirable icons while her attitude resembles that of a man.
