The funeral of actress Anouk Aimée, one of the most famous faces of French cinema, who died on June 18 at the age of 92, took place on Tuesday in Paris “in the strictest family and friendly privacy”, we learned from those around him.

The actress of “A Man and a Woman”, “Lola” and “La Dolce Vita” was buried in the Saint-Vincent cemetery in Montmartre, the Parisian district where she lived and died.

The director Claude Lelouch, who had given the actress international notoriety by sharing the poster with Jean-Louis Trintignant in the legendary “A Man and a Woman”, Palme d’or in 1966, was among the relatives who attended at the funeral.

“The Lovers of Verona”

Director Nadine Trintignant and actress Charlotte Rampling were also present.

Born Françoise Dreyfus on April 27, 1932 in Paris, Anouk Aimée also filmed with the greatest of Franco-Italian cinema: Jacques Demy (“Lola”), Federico Fellini (“La Dolce vita” and “Huit et demi”), Marco Bellocchio, Jacques Becker or André Cayatte, who launched it in 1949 in “The Lovers of Verona”.

It had become rarer recently. But she made a moving return in 2019 to Cannes, to reunite the couple from “A Man and a Woman”, in a sequel shot by Claude Lelouch, “The Most Beautiful Years of a Life”.
