Ingenious Pain

"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

There’s no such thing as happy love.

Happy Birthday Isabelle

Why didn’t you tell me? I wanted to protect you.
