Juliette Binoche is back in the cinema with the film Ouistreham, signed Emmanuel Carrère. She plays the role of Marianne Winckler, a writer at the turn of her fifties who infiltrates a group of housekeepers in Caen to study the precariousness of the profession. In C to You this Thursday, the actress spoke of another role in her career in which she was faced with the galley. It was in 1991, just before she began filming Lovers of the New Bridge. For the purposes of the film, Juliette Binoche had lived a few days in the street before recounting her experience in an archival video unearthed by Pierre Lescure and broadcast on the France 5 program. “When you are in the bottom of the hole, we don’t see the solutions. It’s a vicious circle: no housing, no work … It’s a spinning wheel that becomes nightmarish “, explained Juliette Binoche, then aged 27, at the time.
Juliette Binoche: this gesture of a stranger who touched her a lot
Visibly moved by seeing these images, the actress returned to this memorable experience in C à Vous, and in particular to an anecdote that touched her. “I went to Nanterre, where the tramps were picked up to take care of them. […] So I slept there, which was already an ordeal, but very interesting … And coming back to Paris , we took a bus that let us go to take the metro. And there, a man in his forties said to me: ‘I have a 500-franc note, if you want, we can share … “, remembered the actress, won by the emotion.
