Interview with Isabelle Huppert: "There's always a form of self-portrait in my roles"

Cinema

How many movie stars’ filmographies can be said to recount the story of cinema over the past 40 years, from Otto Preminger and Jean-Luc Godard to Maurice Pialat, André Téchiné, Benoît Jacquot, Serge Bozon, Hong Sang-soo and Claire Denis? In an age of streaming and series, Claude Chabrol’s favourite actress embodies an eternal and perennial idea of the seventh art. In her latest movie, “Frankie”, filmed by American director Ira Sachs, she plays the role of a dying actress who spends her final weeks seeking peace on the Portuguese coast. Without overdoing it, Huppert plays with her own image, all the while seeming to detach herself from it, a characteristic blurring of the boundaries that makes each of her performances utterly captivating. Numéro talked to her about the shoot, her career and her intimate feelings about cinema.
