“The legendary French chanteuse known only as Barbara, gifted with a tremulously expressive voice and striking stage presence, is an enduring icon of French culture. In this tantalizing tribute from actor-director Mathieu Amalric, a transfixing, chameleon-like Jeanne Balibar stars as Brigitte, a film actress cast in a biopic about the singer. The result is a mesmerizing meta-cinematic high-wire act about the slippery nature of performance and identity as Balibar’s Barbara merges with footage of the real-life diva until the two become virtually indistinguishable.” (Film at Lincoln Center). The film won Un Certain regard prize at Cannes in 2017 and Balibar won the César for Best Actress in 2018 for her performance.
