n°291/ Beautiful Bourgeoise

March 2018

by Nathalie Azoulai

Her first name was of a boy. A quality that influenced our look on her. In most movies she played in, she had short or straight bobbed hair styles. Her voice was deep and still, her figure an epitomy of the 1970s French bourgeoise, very slightly boyish. An embodiment both her ex-husband Claude Chabrol and Luis Bunuel like to stage, especially to spot her turpitude and misdemeanours. Under her uncanny beauty. Her colours were an elegant blend of green, brown and auburn. She just died, she was 85. Irreplaceable.
