"Isabelle is both intimate and distant, intelligent, cold, burning — and prepared to do anything to act. She gives herself to others while at the same time is absent; she is solitary and multiple in nature. One might say that this is true of all actresses. But in Isabelle there is something like a fatal eagerness she has taken upon herself."
- Patrice Chéreau
on Isabelle Huppert

Lucien Cordier: Why should I have done something?
Rose: Why? To stop me!
Lucien Cordier: It wasn’t up to me to stop you. It was up to you. If I put temptation in front of you, it’s not a reason to use it.
