EFA to honor Isabelle Huppert

Actress to receive world cinema tribute

BERLIN — The European Film Academy will honor French actress Isabelle Huppert with its European Achievement in World Cinema tribute at the European Film Awards ceremony on Dec. 12 in Bochum.

“Whether as a Jewish refugee in Diane Kurys’ ‘Coup de foudre’ (Entre Nous), as late-17th century Madame de Maintenon in ‘Saint-Cyr’ by Patricia Mazuy, or as Magistrate Jeanne Charmant in Claude Chabrol’s ‘L’ivresse du pouvoir’ (Comedy of Power), Isabelle Huppert has given some of cinema’s most unforgettable moments a face,” the academy said.

Huppert has collaborated regularly with Chabrol over the years on films such as “Violette Noziere,” “Une affaire de femmes” (Story of Women), “Madame Bovary” and “La ceremonie.”

She has also worked with the likes of Andrzej Wajda, the Taviani brothers, Jean-Luc Godard, and Michael Cimino, as well as Maurice Pialat, Michel Deville, Mauro Bolognini, Marco Ferreri, Benoit Jacquot and Bertrand Tavernier.

Among her many awards are European Film Awards for her roles in Michael Haneke’s “The Piano Teacher” and Francois Ozon’s “8 femmes” as well as a BAFTA and a David di Donatello for Claude Goretta’s “La dentelliere,” in addition to a slew of festival prizes from Berlin, Cannes and Venice.
