Isabelle Huppert is certainly brave. The 52-year-old French film star has just made her New York stage debut in a play written by the late British playwright, Sarah Kane. But perhaps what these theatregoers loved was the sheer proximity to her. New York it seems, is in the grip of all things Huppert at the moment. This selection celebrates her work with filmmakers great and good, from Jean Luc Godard to the French master of mystery, Claude Chabrol, as well as the American auteur Otto Preminger.
