1999

Entrevues pays tribute to two French filmmakers: Robert Bresson, who disappeared this year, and François Truffaut, through a complete retrospective of their work.
And, honour to women in the transversale program: "La Tête dans les étoiles" is dedicated this year to the actresses. Lillian Gish, Louise Brooks, Marlene Dietrich, Sophia Loren, Ingrid Berman, Brigitte Bardot or Catherine Deneuve, thirty actresses that turned cinema upside down.
