Léa Seydoux

The name Seydoux has always been a synonym of cinema, but never more than when Léa came into the picture. She started her career in front of the camera of French auteurs, getting small roles in the films of Bertrand Bonello and Catherine Breillat. In 2010, Christophe Honoré chose her to star as La Belle Personne, and Rebecca Zlotowski made her the lead of Belle Epine. Seydoux quickly becomes a movie star both in France and internationally; in addition to Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, Brad Bird’s Mission Impossible and Sam Mendes’ James Bond Spectre, she also stars in Yorgos Lanthimos’ The Lobster and two films by Benoît Jacquot (Farewell My QueenLe Journal d’une femme de chambre). In 2012, Léa Seydoux was honored with the Palme d’Or for her role in Blue is the Warmest Color, along with her co-star Adèle Exarchopoulos and director Abdellatif Kechiche. This year in Cannes, she starred in Xavier Dolan’s latest film It’s Only the End of the World.

Léa Seydoux shares with us five films she loves.

01

On Dangerous Ground, Nicholas Ray, 1951

Watch the film

It's my favorite film by Ray for its moral view, how to do things by following your heart.

02

Love in the Afternoon, Eric Rohmer, 1972

Watch the film

This film is intimidating — like mad love is.

03

A Place in the Sun, George Stevens, 1951

Watch the film

With Stevens it’s always an adventure! You have the impression that the film was shot very quickly as the passions in the film are so electric and dazzling.

04

Good Morning, Yasujiro Ozu, 1959

Watch the film

Ozu is a great, radical stylist. He paints his characters as if they're in a Japanese print. And with an incredible tenderness.

05

The Kid, Charlie Chaplin, 1921

Watch the film

The Kid is the vision of a child, the vision of the true filmmaker: simple, crude, sharp and tender.
