Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,

Stéphane Audran

Here is a delicate song, chosen to enhance the mysterious beauty of aristocratic French actress Stéphane Audran, who could be called the French Faye Dunaway.
Stéphane Audran (born Colette Suzanne Dacheville in 1932 in Versailles, France) is a French film and television actress, known for her performances in Oscar winning movies such as "Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie" ("The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie") (1972) and "Babettes Gaestebud" ("Le festin de Babette", "Babette's Feast") (1987) and in critically acclaimed films like "The Big Red One" (1980) and "Violette Nozière" (1978).
She married French director and screenwriter Claude Chabrol in 1964, after a short marriage to the French actor Jean-Louis Trintignant.
Her first major role was in Chabrol's film "Les cousins" (1959). She has since appeared in most of Chabrol's films (she has made twenty-one films with him - "L'œil du Malin" [1962] was her first starred part). Some of the more noteworthy of his films Audran has appeared in are "Les bonnes femmes" (1960), "La femme infidèle" (1968), "Les biches" (1968) as a rich lesbian who becomes involved in a ménage à trois (she first gained notice in this), "Le boucher" (1970) as a school teacher who falls in love with a murderous butcher, "Juste avant la nuit" (1971), and "Violette Nozière" (1978). She won the Silver Bear for Best Actress for her role in "Les biches" at the 18th Berlin International Film Festival. She has also appeared in the first film of Éric Rohmer ("Signe du lion"), Jean Delannoy ("La peau de Torpédo"), Gabriel Axel ("Babettes Gaestebud", as the mysterious cook, Babette), Bertrand Tavernier ("Coup de torchon", as the wife of the cop turned serial killer, Lucien Cordier) and Samuel Fuller ("The Big Red One"). The most celebrated of her non-Chabrol films was Luis Buñuel's Oscar-winning "Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie" (1972) as Alice Sénéchal. Also appearing in English-language productions, Audran has appeared in American movies, like "The Black Bird" (1975), and in TV serials like "Brideshead Revisited" (1981), "Mistral's Daughter" (1984) and "The Sun Also Rises" (1984). Audran won a France's César Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her performance in "Violette Nozière" and British Film Academy award for "Just Before Nightfall" (1975).
Enjoy the beauty and charm of Stéphane Audran!
