Director's biography

After studying political science in Aix-en Provence, Fanny Ardant decided to focus on her true passion : acting on stage. François Truffaut gave her her first role in The Woman Next Door in 1981. Fanny then collaborated with many great directors: Alain Resnais, Costa Gavras, Michelangelo Antonioni or François Ozon. She shot in 2009 her first film as a director, Ashes and Blood, which was screened at the Cannes International Film Festival the same year.
