If they wanted to simply tell you about someone pouring the tea, it would take about ten minutes. They would act out all the parts. I had to kind of jump in there because, as the youngest, if I wanted to get in an opinion, I had to yell and jump and really participate. In addition to participating, I was also observing. I think an actor really has to be an observant person. Not necessarily remembering facts, not observing THAT way. Hide

She plays a woman in an increasingly grim dilemma, which is largely of her own making. Yet somehow, in her passionate eyes, we see glimpses of Marie's hope for, and even belief in, a loving future for herself and her family. Such are Bérénice's gifts that her performance remains unadorned, yet deeply layered. So the film's increasingly tragic revelations feel at once inevitable and utterly surprising. Berenice's taut yet unstrained simplicity anchors Farhadi's film and serves as the gravitational center for her fellow actors. As always, Ms. Bejo's luminous face wordlessly expresses the depths of emotion that the filmmaker wishes us to know. Hide

And because I take myself to that place, or try to keep myself at that place, the spirit has always provided for me. I've always had work. I've never gotten rich doing it, but I could die tomorrow and say that I've had a FULL artistic life. Hide
