Dialogue: Catherine Deneuve
On the eve of her AFI tribute, the iconic actress talks about her work in the acclaimed animated feature "Persepolis"
Tossed around with increasing abandon, the word "icon" has been all but drained of meaning. But paired with the name Catherine Deneuve its true significance is restored.
