Personal Quote:

We live in a so-called heterosexual society which is really male heterosexual. Power, press, media, industry all stress male achievements. Heterosexuality was a mask. In the commercial cinema, this heterosexuality appears basically anti-feminine: you see more male faces on the posters than before. The world is showing its true face at last. See more »

Trivia:

In the documentary Delphine Seyrig, portrait d'une comète (2000), Michael Lonsdale tells a very poignant anecdote related to the actress: Delphine had once made him a gift of a succulent plant that grew flowers about every two years. He claims that it kept flourishing for about 15 years, but never again after Delphine's death. See more »
