You get used to in the Era Kosslick to the Aura of the great Actresses of the French cinema, that the appointment of Juliette appears Binoche to the Jury Päsidentin almost. A glance at the Berlinale history reveals, then, but to own amazement, how many years the last Festival under the Jury presidency of the French movie stars is already back.
in 1992 was, Annie Girardot, the Jury, nine years before the inscrutable Jeanne Moreau. Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Fanny Ardant, the run felt in the year of stroke in Berlin on the red carpet, has been given this honor. And this year's Ehrenbär-prize-winner Charlotte Rampling, the Jury President in 2006, is "only" choice-Parisian.
Juliette Binoche Glamour and a rigorous understanding of artistic cinema. Without it, only the French cinema of the last 30 years would not have been decidedly more boring. Their performances are inextricably linked to their Directors and filmmakers: Jean-Luc Godard, André Téchiné, Leos Carax, Olivier Assayas, Bruno Dumont, Claire Denis. Outside of France, she worked with Krzystof Kieslowski, Michael Haneke, Abbas Kiarostami, David Cronenberg and Naomi Kawase, whose Film "The flower of harmony" during the Berlinale, in the cinemas. The list reads like a carefully curated Who-Is-Who of the international auteur cinema. Binoche may externally act in a controlled way – in Michael Haneke's paranoid family drama "Caché" keeps you on the side of Daniel Auteuil cooling the Overview, but in your choice of Role, she is always searching for the Venture. "I'm more radical than ever," she said last week, the "time".
Nude scenes like you are not particularly
finally, Binoche turned twice with Claire Denis, which, with its uncompromising view on female and male body, an outsider in the French cinema remained. In the Science Fiction Film "High Life" emerges from Binoche a "fuck machine," as Robert Pattinson is called the Virtual Reality Sexsimulator once, driving on an interstellar prison station in space. The dramatic scene not without a certain humour, also because it fits so not at all to the cultivated image Binoches. You may Nude scenes, not particularly, she said, have Sex in your life is not a priority. She'd prefer to be sought after.
Binoche chose their roles well in this respect with Caution. The old-fashioned Look of French cinema on the young woman's body has eluded them always. The most offensive in her first major role in André téchiné's "Rendez-vous" from 1985 in which the then-21-Year-old embodies a budding actress who has slept, according to its own information in the first three months in the hustle and bustle of Paris, never twice in the same bed. In the impulsive promiscuity of her character Nina is a typical French men slumbered still fantasy (Jean-Louis Trintignant as her Mentor). But your unconditional passion for Téchiné – already at that time a master in the Sense of youthful intensity, an impetuous expression of emancipation. 30 years older Binoche plays in Claire Denis' "My beautiful inner sun" a similar role.
Unleashed dance through Paris
another Director, Binoche coined early on, was Leos Carax. With him, she was in a relationship for a while private. "The lovers of Pont-Neuf", a love story set in Paris in the homeless milieu out appeared like a comet in the bourgeois French cinema. Juliette Binoche and Denis Lavant plays a blind painter, he had a fire – breather -, both of which corresponded to their inimitable way, an impulsive physicality, the congenial Carax's exuberant notion of melodrama. Your unleashed dance through Paris in front of the imposing fireworks to the 200-year celebrations of the French Revolution is one of the unforgettable cinema moments. Carax, told Binoche later, I showed her what power it can have in the cinema. The production turned out to be at the time as a disaster, but Binoche fought for the Film. It should not be the last Time that you stood up for a project, the heart.Berlinale 2019 - competitive film view more images of 1 of 25Foto: By Amesen / Berlinale29.01.2019 09:18The Chinese Director Wang Quan'an returns with "Öndög" in the Mongolian Steppe, where his bear-winner...Back More
Hollywood is Juliette Binoche on the other hand remained always a little suspect, although they celebrated their greatest successes. In 1997, she won for her role in the self-sacrificing nurse in the war melodrama "The English Patient" an Oscar as best supporting actress (at the Berlinale, you had been already awarded with the Silver bear), in Lasse Hallströms culinary Petitesse "Chocolat" could you wrap Johnny Depp with chocolate confections around the Finger. It is not in retrospect sure your strongest characters, years later, she criticized Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese for the backward image of women in their films. However, the two Directors were able to start with your accusation of nothing. Quite different Olivier Assayas, who wrote 2015 just for you, "The clouds of Sils Maria": An actress at the peak of their career will be confronted with a previous role and will expire about it in a personal crisis.
critical views of female role models
Binoche has not only from my own experience, a critical eye for female role models in the cinema, in this respect, it is an ideal choice as Jury President in a year, with seven female Directors in the competition Two years ago she was, along with Jessica Chastain, Freida Pinto and Catherine Hardwicke of the founders of the production company "We Do It Together", the Director is supported in their first films financially. The first production to celebrate in may, in Cannes Premiere.More about

another heart project was fulfilled in 2013, with "Camille Claudel 1915," about the last years of the French sculptor in a psychiatric institution. She wanted to let the misunderstood artist, finally, justice is served again. In the Director Bruno Dumont, she found a worthy Partner who wanted to follow her radical Vision. "Camille Claudel 1915" was rejected in Cannes and at the Berlinale film festival. Juliette Binoche has not forgotten Dieter kosslick's. With their Jury-presidency, she returns the Engagement now.
