She plays Lucille, who lives a mundane and superficial life, tinged with ease and a taste for luxury. His heart was beating frantically, fast and passionately. Like the heart of cinema that the Cannes Film Festival celebrates every year: its full vital rhythm is felt everywhere. The heart of the Seventh Art—of its artists, professionals, amateurs, and journalism—beats like a drum, to the rhythm of urgency imposed by its eternal nature. The Peau d’Âne actress is the embodiment of cinema, far from the conventional or proper. Uncompromising and always consistent with his convictions, even at the cost of going out of the way. She is inspiring Jacques Demy, Anice Varda, Luis Buñuel, François Truffaut, Marco Ferreri, Manuel de Oliveira, André Cheney, Emmanuel Bercot or Arnaud Desplechin. His collaborations add to the pool of the formidable filmmakers of yesterday and today. Katherine is the link between them all. For more than 60 years, France’s biggest star has never stopped shooting, reinventing himself, experimenting, daring to take on counterintuitive or elementary works. An icon who never stopped and kept his art alive. Deneuve embodies in his own way the wealth of cinema that the festival wants to defend: arthouse films but also high-quality popular films.
