JEANNE MOREAU (1928 – 2017)

Jules et Jim, Lift to the Scaffold, Chimes at Midnight. They defined student filmgoing, and encouraged generations of young men to learn French, just in case they should ever meet Jeanne Moreau. I had the honour of spending an evening with her when I was 27 and she was almost 70. By turns funny, fierce and brittle, with an incredible radiance, she was vivacious and flirtatious, truly leaving me breathless. Perfect excuse to binge on French cinematic nouvelle vague, starting with Viva Maria!
