She has an exceptional filmography, a great career in the theater and a unique charisma. After more than 60 years of career, Françoise Fabian shines in “Rose”, Aurélie Saada’s first film, in a role written for her. We had the privilege of meeting her, for an interview where she returned to the highlights of her career and her role as Rose.
A first film and a very beautiful role for Françoise Fabian
Currently showing Pink, first feature film directed by Aurélie Saada, actress, composer, and above all famous for having been half of the musical duo Brigitte, the great actress Françoise Fabian shines in this tender and moving film. Pink tells the story of a septuagenarian, Rose, newly widowed and mother of a girl and two boys, all adults and embodied by Aure Atika, Grégory Montel and Damien Chapelle. Family drama, the movie Pink ask this question: can we escape the common fate of old age, that of accepting to gradually disappear, as time passes and loved ones disappear? Rose does not want to suffer this fate, and does not see why she would stop living her life, even if everything around her is asked to take care of herself.
Françoise Fabian, a legend of French cinema
On the occasion of the release of Pink at the cinema on December 8, 2021, we were able to meet the actress Françoise Fabian. Born in 1933 in Algiers, she made her film debut in 1956 in Memoirs of a cop by Pierre Foucaud, and has never left the big screen since. But she is also a great theater actress, both in the classical and contemporary register. She is also a television actress, and again a singer with an album released in 2018. In short, she is from this category of performers for whom we write, imagine and invent great stories and cinema.
We asked her about the highlights of her career, and it was with an intact passion and full energy that she told us about the shooting of My night at Maud’s by Eric Rohmer, his collaboration with Lino Ventura in La Bonne Annee by Claude Lelouch, and his character Pink.
