Two iconic French women are on the podcast. First time guest, long time I Know That Face editor and filmmaker in her own right Charline Fernandez joins us this week to talk the incomparable Isabelle Huppert. With a career stretching over nearly 50 years Huppert has been a constant in French and world cinema since her BAFTA winning breakthrough performance in La Dentelliere. She has worked in France, America, the Phillipines, South Korea, Italy, Cambodia and Russia with acclaimed directors from Michael Cimino to Paul Verhoeven to Hong Sang-soo. She has won Best Actress at Cannes for Michael Haneke’s The Piano Teacher and was showered with awards in 2016 for both Verhoeven’s Elle and Mia Hansen-Love’s Things to Come, the former winning her a Golden Globe. Although best known for high-brow, complex films Huppert has appeared in the American action vehicle Dead Man Down, Neil Jordan’s send-up of 90’s thrillers Greta and also starred in the 11th season finale of Law & Order: SVU and an episode of French film industry themed sitcom Call My Agent.
