Isabelle Yasmine Adjani was born on June 27, 1955 in Paris from
a German mother and an Algerian father of Turkish origin. It
is in Gennevilliers that it passes its childhood with her Eric
brother. It starts to make theatre in its college of Courbevoie.
In 1969, at the fourteen years age, it is répérée
for the role of Rose in the Small Coal merchant. She continues,
in 1971, by Faustine and the beautiful summer. Thereafter, it
turns a tele serial, the secrecy of the Flemings whose intrigue
proceeds at the time of the Italian Rebirth.
Its career really
starts in 1972, at 17 years. After having failed the entrance
examination to the Academy, Isabelle Adjani is chosen by Robert
Hossein to form part of her theatre company in Rheims. In November,
it is called with the Comédie-Française, where
is urged it to play Agnès in the school of the women
with Bernard Blier. General public will then discover it by
the televised diffusion of the part, then in Ondine de Giraudoux.
Recognized for her exceptional talent by criticisms of theatre,
Isabelle Adjani will become a genuine star of the cinema with
the Slap of Claude Pinoteau, ave Lino Ventura, Francis Perrin
and Annie Girardot, where it plays the part of a a little unstable
teenager. In his following film, François Truffaut makes
him play in love impassioned, with the limit of the madness,
in the history of Adele H., inspired by the life of the girl
of Victor Hugo. After having turned with Truffaut, one asks
it everywhere. In 1976, Isabelle Adjani turns "the Tenant"
of Novel Polanski, "Barocco", with Gerard Depardieu.
In 1979, it plays in the remake of "Nosferatu" with
Werner Herzog with Klaus Kinski. It would take too a long time
to continue the list of all films where she illustrated herself:
one will appoint "the fatal summer" of Jean Becker
in 1983, "Subway" in 1985, "Camille Claudel"
in 1988, "the Margot Queen" in 1994, and more recently
(2003) excellent "the Happy voyage". Rare artist,
Isabelle Adjani and a sure value of the French cinema and each
new film in which it takes part transform immediately into success,
and it is certainly not ready to finish ...
