Multi-award winning artist Agnès Jaoui joined forces with Jean-Pierre Bacri to develop a theatre and film style of which Kitchen with Apartment and Family Resemblances were first to meet with success. They worked with Alain Resnais on Smoking/No Smoking and Same Old Song. In 2000, Agnès Jaoui directed The Taste of Others, which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and won four César, including the César Award for Best Film. She wrote and directed Look at Me, which won Best Screenplay Award at the 2004 Festival de Cannes, followed by Let’s Talk About the Rain (2008) and Under the Rainbow (2013). She is a singer, and her Latin “Canta” album won a Victoire de la Musique award in 2007. She returned to the stage in 2014, and regularly appears on the silver screen, most recently in Bruno Podalydès’ The Sweet Escape and Aurore by Blandine Lenoir.
