Considered great actresses of their eras, these “Les Blondes” are internationally recognised and renowned. Catherine Deneuve was selected by the European Film Academy to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award, Simone Signoret was the recipient of multiple Oscars, Romy Schneider was the inaugural winner of the Best Actress César in 1976, Jean Seberg immortalised La Nouvelle Vague in cinema and style, and Bardot’s status as a global icon of beauty continues to be celebrated by a number of art and fashion institutions. Between romance and drama, comedy and adventure, experience these films as they were meant to be experienced on the big screen. Rediscover the classic splendour of “Les Blondes” in the company of performers Yves Montand, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jeanne Moreau, Serge Reggiani, and Isabelle Huppert.
