Isabelle Adjani’s fierce, powerful screen presence has made her an icon of French cinema. Bursting onto the international scene at the age of 19 in Truffaut’s The Story of Adele H. (the director declared her a “genius”), the raven-haired beauty has gone on to win a record five César Awards, work with such auteurs as Werner Herzog, Roman Polanski, Andrzej Zulawski, and Walter Hill, and become an outspoken champion of immigrant rights. In her finest roles—most notably her acclaimed portrait of the titular artist in Camille Claudel and the monumental freak-out that is Possession—Adjani projects a smoldering intensity that is at once alluring and excitingly unpredictable.
