Currently at the 38th edition of the Cabourg Film Festival in Normandy, (which takes place from June 12 to 16, 2024), Virginie Efira has obtained the prestigious role of president of the jury, succeeding director Katell Quillévéré.

Filmed by our colleagues from Vanity Fair on the red carpet of the event, the 47-year-old actress was sublime in a short dress and was able to do a remake of Romeo and Juliet with her darling Niels Schneider. On the other hand, this time, Niels had taken the role of Juliette and stood on the balcony while Virginie was ready to tell a flirtatious story to her “promote”.

Virginie Efira and Niels Schneider were like Romeo and Juliet on the balcony of the Grand Hôtel on the red carpet of the Romantic Days of the Cabourg Festival” can we read in the caption of this video shared on Instagram. “These two are incredible”, “Love is not dead!!”, “Oh these two then”, “WOW radiant”, “GOAL couple” can we read in the comments of the publication. In a relationship since 2018 and parents of Hiro, born August 28, 2023, the lovers still seem to love each other like the first day.

Present alongside Melvil Poupaud, Clotilde Courau, Daphné Patakia, Stéphanie Di Giusto, Pascale Pouzadoux, Marie-Ange Luciani, David François and the writer Laurent Mauvignier who complete the jury, Virginie Efira will have to decide between several films in competition on the central theme of love.
