Isabelle Huppert has had a stellar year, making a splash in two critically acclaimed films this year: Mia Hansen-Løve’s “Things to Come” and Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle,” which could earn her an Oscar nomination.
With a career spanning over four decades and with over 100 credits to her name, the French actress has earned 15 César nominations, winning the coveted Best Actress award in 1995 for her role in “La cérémonie.” She also has a BAFTA Award, won two Best Actress titles at the Cannes Film Festival and most recently won Best Actress at the 2016 Gotham Awards. To pay tribute to her remarkable career, filmmaker Candice Drouet created the video essay, “Isabelle Huppert: 100 Faces.”
The clip includes scenes from “Every Man for Himself,” “Copacabana,” “Violette Nozière,” “8 Women” and many others. The video looks at Huppert’s previous work and adds tidbits about her roles, like the fact that she portrayed a daughter six times and “a mother 34 times, but [was] only married 21 times.”
Huppert, who is currently nominated for Best Female Lead at the 2017 Independent Spirit Awards, has a slew of projects in the works, including “Madame Hyde,” an Untitled Hang Sang-soo Project and “Marvin.” She’ll next be seen in “Souvenir,” which will be released December 21 in France.
