A few days after the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, Luxembourg actress Vicky Krieps hit the red carpet. Invited to defend two films, she came to present “Corsage” on Friday May 20, 2022. In this film in the running for the official selection “Un certain regard”, she plays Empress Sissi.
Vicky Krieps caused a stir on the festival’s red carpet. Dressed soberly in a long white dress, golden accessories and black pumps, she paraded all smiles and posed under the flashes of the photographers. Accompanied by Marie Kreutzer, the 38-year-old actress and the director of the film were particularly complicit.
Vicky Krieps: “Gaspard will be alive on screen”.
Saturday May 21, Vicky Krieps will once again be on the red carpet for a special moment. This time, she will come to defend the film “More than ever” by Emily Atef. This feature film marks the last film in which Gaspard Ulliel appeared on screen, before his tragic death in a skiing accident on January 19, 2022.
Before the film was released, Vicky Krieps, who was particularly close to the 37-year-old actor, confided in an interview with Paperjam magazine: “The screening can only be a nice moment, given that, the time of this film, Gaspard will be alive on the screen.To be present in Cannes, in a last feature film which thus speaks of the love of a couple, and of how this love can survive death, it is a beautiful analogy. Strong and deep.” A beautiful moment that will inevitably be charged with emotions.
