Following her studies at the prestigious Cours Florent, Emmanuelle Devos began shooting with the brilliant young generation of filmmakers fresh out of La Fémis: Noémie Lvovsky Dis-moi oui,dis-moi non and Arnaud Desplechin Life of the Dead, My Sex Life... or How I Got Into an Argument. The accolades arrived in 2001 with Jacques Audiard’s Read My Lips (César for Best Actress). Next came Nicole Garcia’s The Adversary, Léa Fazer’s Welcome to Switzerland, Arnaud Desplechin’s Kings and Queen and A Christmas Tale, Jacques Audiard’s The Beat That My Heart Skipped and Emmanuel Carrère’s The Moustache, as well as Alain Resnais’s Wild Grass and Xavier Giannoli’s In The Beginning (the 2010 César for Best Actress in a Supporting Role). She will soon begin shooting with director Jérôme Bonnell alongside Gabriel Byrne and will take on the role of Violette Leduc, working with director Martin Provost.
