In my teens I was mesmerized by her beauty, my favourite movie with her is Claude Chabrol's Alice ou la derniere fugue.

2012 (2009)

An epic adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors.

Basically a remake of When Worlds Collide with more spectacular destruction scenes but just as trashy.

Maltin **: "State-of-the-art CGI wizardry is employed to eye-popping effect in this latest apocalyptic extravaganza from the director of  THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW. But the pace too often is plodding, the performances wildy uneven, and the script crammed with laughable cliches and preposterous coincidences...this amped-up version of a '70s disaster film offers little more than very expensive cheap thrills."

Une affaire d'état (2009)

The assassination of a girl on a street in Pigalle and the shooting down of a plane are two cases related and both involve people in high places.

Complex and fascinating political thriller revealing ever deeper levels of corruption.

It was dark by the time I reached Bonn, and I forced myself not to succumb to the series of mechanical actions which had taken hold of me in five years of traveling back and forth: down the station steps, up the station steps, put down my suitcase, take my ticket out of my pocket, pick up my suitcase, hand in my ticket, cross over to the newsstand, buy the evening papers, go outside, and signal for a taxi.
