In 60 years of cinema and over 130 films, Jeanne Moreau worked with some of the great directors, from Luis Buñuel to Wim Wenders, François Truffaut to Orson Welles…

Jeanne Moreau always portrayed strong characters, seeking to upset the morality of her era with great freedom in her lifestyle, defending the image of the emancipated woman and her choices in life and love, as in "Jules et Jim" by Truffaut. We are left with memories of her raucous voice that will always be humming "Le tourbillon de la vie", and her unique physique that never failed to make its mark on her lovers or her co-stars.

The femme fatale she was in real life could be seen on the big screen and though the lenses of photographers.
