Quavering voice, tense face, Isabelle Adjani had great difficulty hiding her emotion on Sunday, during the silent march for peace launched by the world of culture. If several thousand people took part in this “silent” and “apolitical” march, Isabelle Adjani counted the notable absentees among the 600 signatories of the forum published by the collective Another Voice. “Where are all the other signatories?” regretted the 68-year-old actress on TF1.
At the head of the procession on Sunday, Isabelle Adjani insisted on the importance of this march. “It’s today or never,” said the actress, stunned by the lack of involvement of certain representatives of the world of culture in a march “where there was no question of taking a position for a camp or another".
“I think that no artist risks anything by being present, and of course, it pains me,” she laments, still at the microphone of TF1. Accompanied by Emmanuel Béart, Charles Berling, Isabelle Carré and Agnès Jaoui, Isabelle Adjani seemed particularly moved when discussing the fate of the hostages held by Hamas. Behind her tinted glasses, we can see tears: “I have a lot of trouble speaking, I’m sorry,” she slips in the middle of one of her sentences.
This march represents for her a “call from the heart for the release of the hostages”, which she considers to be an “absolute priority” and hopes that the Palestinian people “do not look at Hamas as their savior”.
