la binoche

"I knew I had become a star when I shook hands with Simone Signoret at the 1985 Cannes Film Festival. She died four months later".- juliette binoche

this actress is like spring water. the first time i saw her in a film i ran to the theatre to get there on time. i was in paris and the movie was 'rendez-vous.' i just had a feeling i would love it. i have never seen 'the english patient' which is the one that put her on the map in such a big way. someday.

she has 47 screen credits and she is making films left and right, always with interesting directors from all over the world. she recently won top honors at cannes which is like waking up to lotus blossoms in your backyard. the french call her 'la binoche.'
