Jeanne Moreau RIP

And so another icon of 20th century France passes. Jeanne Moreau, probably the face of the Nouvelle Vague, the French cinema movement that influenced the world, has died aged 89.

Moreau was for many one of France's most iconic actors.

Her music career saw releases from the early 1960s to her work with Etienne Daho in the last decade, a parallel and less-well known career to her screen performances.

A list of the films she starred in reads like the viewing list for a film studies degree in 20th century European cinema, and the names of the directors she worked with looks like a list of the giants of 20th century film.
