she's perfection incarnate
So many tour-de-force perfomances to adore, so many movies to watch only for her very presence. Not only the best French actress, but the the best actress in activity. Love her unconditionally.
One of the greatest actresses of our time. At the top of her art, not afraid to take on difficult roles and still looking to challenge herself even at this stage of her career. She impresses me every time I see a film of hers, yet, she is so icily and frighteningly perfect that I always feel as if I was watching her through a thick glass pannel.
She vanishes into every role so completely that one never perceives any trace of Huppert, the real person. It's almost frightening.
