My Life? My career? Je ne regrette rien … confesses French film icon Funny Ardant

Nov 25 2019

A retrospective on the life and the career of Funny Ardant, Close Encounter, at Rome Cinema Festa, 14th Edition, Rome October 2019.

Muse of Francois Truffaut and a true icon of the French and international cinema, Fanny Ardant comes back to the big screen with grace and charisma in a genial, intense and exhilarating movie that is all about nostalgia and recapturing the past to make sense of the present;  La Belle Epoque by French director Nicolas Bedos. The film has been presented in the competition section of the 14th Edition of the Festa del Cinema di Roma 

But forget about being lost in the past; at 68 years old and with more than 80 films under her belt, Funny Ardant is more vibrant and beautiful than ever – we met her at the Close Encounter held at the Auditorium during the Festa del Cinema di Roma.
