Helen Mirren mourns French actress Jeanne Moreau, dead at 89

French film legend Jeanne Moreau dies at 89

In 1957, Malle sported her in a French theatrical production of Cat on a Hot Tin Root and cast her in his first feature film, Ascenseur Pour L'echafaud (Elevator to the Scaffold), which was released in the United States as Frantic. "I never felt at ease on the screen because I was aware that I was far from lovely". "Most people don't have the energy for passion, so they give up and go to the movies". In 1954, she holds one of her first leading role in not Touch the grisbi, by Jacques Becker. Among her reported liaisons were affairs with Marcello Mastroianni, Lee Marvin, director Tony Richardson and designer Pierre Cardin. It's a single long shot that moves closer and closer to the actress over the course of the song, her eyes and voice refusing to let us dismiss the lyric's chilly comforts: "When all is finished/When your attractive dream dies/Why weep the days fled/Regret the dreams left?/The kisses are wilted/The novel quickly comes to an end/And we remain forever bruised/When all is finished". That had been shocking at the time, about representative also of the freedom of the spirit of Jeanne Moreau. That's its own kind of power, not to be underestimated.

Jeanne Moreau is survived by her son, the actor Jerome Richard. During a Christmas season visit, she offered us slices of galette des roi, a cake with a small crown hidden inside that is a French Epiphany tradition. Both adore her and neither can possess her, but Catherine, as Moreau plays her, is no mere love object. She further marked the history of the festival with her duo with Vanessa Paradis in 1995 on "Le Tourbillon de la Vie", a song drawn from the soundtrack of "Jules et Jim".

His opposition was an advantage in her eyes. For Mademoiselle Moreau, a life as a free woman, a lover of men.

U.S. within our range, says N Korea after missile test
On Saturday, two US B-1 bombers conducted exercises over the Korean peninsula with South Korean and Japanese planes. There are other hurdles, including building nuclear warheads to fit on those missiles and ensuring reliability.

She also directed two films, "Lumière" (1976) and "L'Adolescente" (1979).

Moreau won one of France's highest acting honours, a Cesar for best actress, for The Old Lady Who Walked in the Sea in 1992. You wouldn't call Moreau a "great" singer, but why do you need to? From what she said, it wasn't easy for her.

Talking about feeling "nostalgic" for the French New Wave in the 1996's Moreau once said: "Nostalgia for what?" In that regard, among her fellow actresses she's rivaled perhaps only by Marlene Dietrich. One could hardly ask for more satisfactory publicity. "When the work is over, the meaning comes out by itself". I can still see her expression of delight when it appeared in my wife's slice.
