Catherine Deneuve to receive European Film Academy Lifetime Achievement Award

MUMBAI: Catherine Deneuve, whose decades-long career has made her a prominent name in French cinema, will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from the European Film Academy.


Her roles in Jacques Demy’s The Umbrellas of Cherbourg in 1964 and Repulsion by Roman Polanski in 1965 catapulted her to stardom, and since then she has gone on to work with industry heavyweights such as the late Spanish filmmaker Luis Bunuel in Belle de Jour and Tristana, French director and screenwriter Jean-Pierre Melville in Un Flic and Andre Techine in Ma Saison Preferee and Les Voleurs.


Deneuve earned her first Cesar in 1981 for her role in The Last Metro by Francois Truffaut, and received another Cesar and an Oscar nomination for her role in Regis Wargnier’s Indochine. Her other accolades include a Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival and a Berlin Silver Bear.


Deneuve has also delved into Hollywood, having guest starred in TV series Nip/Tuck and appearing in a sex scene with Susan Sarandon as a bisexual vampire in Tony Scott’s 1983 film The Hunger.


Recently, she starred in Berlin competition title On My Way and will appear in Andrew Techine’s L’homme que l’on aimait trop and Benoit Jacquot’s Trois Coeurs. She will be an honorary guest at the 26th European Film Awards Ceremony on 7 December in Berlin.
