Carole Bouquet retrospective at French Institute

The French Institute will host a Carole Bouquet movie retrospective on February 11-13, during the actress’s visit to Bucharest, Mediafax reports. The retrospective will include Cédric Kahn’s “Red Lights,” Bertrand Blier’s “Cold Cuts,” “Bad Spelling” by Jean-Jacques Zilbermann, and “That Obscure Object of Desire” by Luis Bunuel. The actress will be present at the screening of Bunuel’s film, which was her first role, on February 12, 3 p.m. at Elvira Popescu Hall.


For the first time in Romania, at the invitation of the French Embassy and French Institute in Bucharest, Bouquet will give a reading from Antonin Artaud’s “Letters to Genica” at Odeon Theatre on February 11 and 12, starting from 7 pm. In the letters, iconic playwright and movie figure Artaud expresses his vision of theatre and his unrelenting love for a 1920s Parisian actress, Genica Atanasiu, born in Bucharest.


Born in 1957, Bouquet is one of the best known French actresses and models. Having appeared in more than 40 films since 1977, she is best known internationally for her role as the Bond girl Melina Havelock in the 1981 movie “For Your Eyes Only,” but she also acted in a number of mainstream European films throughout the 1980s and continues to do so in France.


She is also recognized for her work in Bunuel’s surrealist classic “That Obscure Object of Desire,” and in the internationally successful film “Too Beautiful For You” for which she won the Cesar Award for Best Actress.
