"Emmanuelle Beart"

There seems to be a bit of an Emmanuelle Beart renaiscance going on at the moment. Saw in Blockbusters that Nelly and Mr Arnaud is being re-released, and her new film Nathalie was being plugged in today’s Metro.

If you’ve only seen her in Mission Impossible then you may wonder what the big deal is – I think M.I. did justice to neither her acting ability or beauty, compared with, say, En Coeur en Hiver, or Manon des Sources. Nelly is a great film – might even watch it again – and I’m certainly going to keep an eye out for Nathalie (funnily enough also the name – with that spelling – of a girl I once fancied when I was young, free, and single).
