Catherine Deneuve to Receive European Film Award for Lifetime Achievement
The grande dame of French cinema most recently appeared in Berlin competition title “On My Way.”
Catherine Deneuve, one of the true grandes dames of French cinema, will be honored with a lifetime achievement award at this year's European Film Awards in Berlin on Dec. 7.
Deneuve, whose decades-long career as one of Europe's most recognizable actresses has earned her two French Cesar awards, a Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival, a Berlin Silver Bear and an Oscar nomination, will attend the 26th EFAs to receive her award.
A fixture on the art-house scene since her breakthrough with Jacques Demy's The Umbrellas of Cherbourg in 1964, Deneuve has worked with many of the greats of European cinema, including Roman Polanski (Repulsion), Luis Bunuel (Belle de Jour), Francois Ozon (8 Women and Potiche) and Lars von Trier (Dancer in the Dark).
Her occasional Hollywood forays have included a legendary turn as a bisexual vampire enjoying a sex scene with Susan Sarandon in Tony Scott's The Hunger (1983) and a guest-starring role in FX's Nip/Tuck series. Her Oscar nomination was for the starring role as Eliane in Regis Wargnier's historic drama Indochine (1992).
The 69-year-old actress has successfully moved from the sex-symbol roles of her youth to more mature, serious turns and remains in demand, most recently starring in Emmanuelle Bercot's Berlin competition entry On My Way, as a woman who sets off on an unlikely road trip with her grandson. Upcoming features include Andre Techine's L'homme que l'on aimait trop and Trois Coeurs from director Benoit Jacquot.
