THE GRAPEVINE: Binoche, the Linguist

Updated April 16, 2017


Julliete Binoche is one of the finest actresses of her generation. The French artist has worked in celebrated films such as The English Patient and Blue (from the legendary Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski’s three colours trilogy).

Last week, the actress took part in a podcast for a British media outlet where her admirers put questions to her and she replied to them without hemming and hawing. When one of them tried to be cheeky with her and asked the actress whether she was an introvert or an extrovert, she retorted. “Inextrovert! Try it.”

A fine actress and now a fine wordsmith too.
