By Benjamin Secher. Until I met her, I had always placed Tautou, now 32 but with the slender frame and flawless complexion of a girl half her age, among that rare group of French film actresses — the likes of Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, and most recently Marion Cotillard — with the talent, ambition and, well, je ne sais quoi to earn them a lasting place in the international consciousness. These are women who steal the hearts of even those people who have little interest in either France or film and seem destined to be admired, observed and idolised throughout their lives.

A young woman's life is the most fascinating thing on Earth -- or, at least, after war, the most popular thing. Young, middling and old, female, male and other, we all obsess consciously or unconsciously over what it means to be feminine and evolving -- via love, lust, idolatry, fashion, media, exploitation, worship, inspiration, and a million other modes.

Audrey Tautou is as French as can be. Barely enough to order coffee, I reply. She flags up two offending articles in recent times, one which claimed she was ready to quit acting.
She is the reluctant leading lady who fitfully flirts with the idea of retirement but is appearing in two high-profile comedies this summer, Mood Indigo and Chinese Puzzle. Get The International Pack for free for your first 30 days for unlimited Smartphone and Tablet access. Already a member?
That is, as gold-digging femme fatale Irene, in pursuit of usually elderly and definitely filthy rich men, in order to support for obsessively calculated extravagant and flamboyant materialistic lifestyle. During a stay at a luxury hotel with her current aging lover, Irene by chance encounters Jean Gad Elmaleha bartender there whom she mistakes for a guest. In no way wanting to disillusion this luscious hottie, Jean feeds her fantasy of him as another man with lots of money to target and seduce. Priceless is quite an impressive gem of a movie, however tarnished the flawed protagonists.
She is the daughter of Marie Laure and Bernard Tautou. She grew up with two sisters and a brother. Audrey Tautou is a famous French actress, who was born on August 9
For someone as shy and discreet as Audrey Tautouthe next few weeks will be feel uncomfortably like putting her head above the parapet again, exposed to potshots from her Gallic critics. Such an honour suggests Tautou has finally made it on to the list of French cinema's national treasures, headed by Catherine Deneuve. Because she was its symbol, its star, it demolished Audrey too.
