Forty years on and Deneuve is still widely regarded as one of the greatest and most international grandes dames of French cinema. Despite her international appeal, however, Deneuve has always chosen to avoid the ferocious glare of Hollywood and seldom allows the public into her private life. In Close Up and Personal, Deneuve gives her fans an exclusive look behind the scenes of her life and career in this fascinating collection of seven previously unpublished diaries that she kept while filming abroad. Written in her own words, Deneuve charts the shooting of films such as The April Fools (1968) co-starring Jack Lemmon; Tristana (1969) directed by the great Luis Bunuel; Indochine (1991), shot in Vietnam and Lars von Trier's acclaimed Dancer in the Dark (1999) co-starring Bjork. Including an exclusive interview with famous director Pascal Bonitzer, Close Up and Personal offers an intimate and revealing insight into Deneuve's life both on- and off-screen.Arguably the greatest cool blonde in cinema history, the truly international star of Roman Polanski's Repulsion has produced a book every bit as riveting as her movie more
