But lets talk about Isabelle Huppert…
Isabelle Huppert is a legend with an illustrious career in her country. Recently, she won the Golden Globes for best actress in a drama for this film… A well deserved recognition and EPIC WIN for a foreign actress playing in a non-English speaking role.
This win comes 10 years after the excellent Marion Cotillard also won all major awards (Golden Globe, BAFTA, Oscar, Cesar, etc) for a French film.
Isabelle, usually plays the stoic, the cynic or the crazy, but she’s immensely likeable and excels at it.
I saw Isabelle for the first time in one of my favourite films, 8 Femmes.
In ELLE, she plays a woman that seems indestructible.
Head of a successful video game company, she brings the same ruthless attitude in all areas of her life… One day she was attacked and rapped in her home… When she resolutely tracks the man down, they got into a dangerous affair…
I feel like the media is not talking much about this incredible actress, so here I am helping the cause because great talent come in different languages from all corners of the world.
Without a doubt, one of the BEST MOVIES of 2016 hands down!!
