Isabelle Huppert

Isabelle Huppert is a great actress, who almost carries the "auteur" notion to acting, with an extremely consistent and firm filmography. Huppert's career proves us that acting is not just "doing what is told", an actor must show attention to the films and which characters he or she will play. Seeing her name in the cast of a film is almost proof to the noteworthiness of that film. The confidence bonds that Huppert's builds with the viewer is unique: The viewer knows that he will see something outstanding in her films, and thus heads to the movie theatre with complacency... Huppert has collaborated with the greatest directors of French cinema, such as Bertrand Tavernier, Claude Goretta, Jean-Luc Goddard, Claude Chabrol and Maurice Pialat. And in the productions that she took part out of France, she has preferred to work with non-conformist directors whose own impressions are felt in the films they make, such as Hal Hartley, Paul Cox, Michael Haneke and David O. Russell. Isabelle Huppert is a rare actress who reveals that a good actress should have her own unique "line". Starting her career in stage plays like "A Month in the Country" and "Medea", Huppert found the opportunity to act –although some in smaller parts– in the films of important directors like Blier, Preminger and Tavernier. However, she shone with The Lacemaker and her unforgettable depiction of Pomme. The films that Huppert has acted in, apart from being productions in which one of the most significant divas of French cinema takes part, tell us a lot about the essence of the notion of acting. One can find in her films, the memorable value that Huppert charges and grants to acting in cinema, and follow her extremely momentous career.
