Catherine Deneuve is everywhere!

October 20th, 2012

Catherine Deneuve, iconic figure of French film for decades, can be seen on billboards all over Paris this fall.  Featured in an ad campaign for the Bon Marché department store – one of the Parisian ‘grands magasins’ – with posters drawn by graphic novelist Marjane Satrapi, author of Persepolis, a wonderful black and white graphic novel (as well as a film by the same title) about her life in Iran/Austria and France.  Deneuve, with hundreds of films to her credit, has been acting continuously since 1956, has won  2 Césars (the French equivalent to an Academy Award) for best actress and has worked with a slew of renowned directors.  And she’s still going strong at 68!
