Adjani x 3 at Metrograph

Image: "Possession" directed by Andrzej Żuławski

She has the aura of having come from another galaxy, of breathing a rarified air, but Isabelle Adjani is a Parisian born, the daughter of an Algerian Kabyle father and German mother, who with her fiercely committed performances, poised presence, and porcelain beauty, would become one of the premiere French film stars of her generation. Appearing as the lovestruck, irrational, and imperturbable Adèle Hugo in François Truffaut’s The Story of Adèle H., shot when she was still a teenager, Adjani established herself as a go-for-broke performer with an uncanny, almost otherworldly presence, two qualities that directors would draw on time and again in the course of her remarkable career. Showing here in international outings for uncompromised auteurs Truffaut, Walter Hill, and Andrzej Żuławski, this Labor Day weekend, why not pay respect to one of the hardest working actresses out there?
