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
on Isabelle Huppert

Isabelle Huppert & Michael Haneke
We have a great silent understanding of one another. Michael Haneke is not a sentimental director, and I’m not a sentimental actress. I always had a very strange feeling when I’d watch the daily footage, like, “How could he possibly have read my thoughts so perfectly?” - Isabelle Huppert
