A magical ingredient of world cinema, a French actress with inimitable charm, elegance and talent.

Juliette Binoche is the epitome of glamour and talent and has been captivating audiences around the world for decades with her distinctive acting style and radiant expression, even off the silver screen. Born on 9 March 1964 in Paris, her path to fame has been as colorful as her subsequent career. From early theatrical performances to groundbreaking roles in French cinema, her ability to embody characters with refinement has also earned her acclaim.

One of her first major roles was as the actress Nina in André Téchiné's 1985 film Rendez-vous.

Her performance in Krzysztof Kieślowski's famous film Three Colours: Blue is unforgettable, as is her charming role as a chocolate chef in Lasse Hallström's Ch­ocolat or her distinctly negative character in Bruno Dumont's quirky detective comedy Slack Bay.
