In 2010, LUDIVINE SAGNIER (Sarrab) worked for the second time with French director Christophe Honoré in "Les Bien-Aimés” (with Catherine Deneuve and Chiara Mastroianni) at the close of this year's Cannes Film Festival, to be released in August.

In 2009, she played lead roles in two French films: "Lily Sometimes,” directed by Fabienne Berthaud, with Diane Krüger; and "Love Crime” Alain Corneau's last film, with Kristin Scott Thomas. 2008 saw the two-part film on the career of French gangster Jacques Mesrine released as "Killer Instinct” and "Public Enemy N°1,” directed by Jean-François Richet and with Vincent Cassel. Ludivine plays Mesrine's last love and reinvents, with a modern twist, the archetype of the gangster's moll.

Before that, Claude Chabrol gave her the lead role in "The Girl Cut in Two,” and another very successful role was ‘Hannah' in "A Secret,” her third collaboration with director Claude Miller.

Ludivine worked simultaneously on a cameo role in the period film "Molière” with Romain Duris; while singing beautifully in "Les Chansons d'Amour,” directed by Christophe Honoré; and presented "Californie” in Cannes Film Festival, directed by Jacques Fieschi.

Alfonso Cuaron chose her to work with him in English in one episode of "Paris Je T'aime,” starring with Nick Nolte, in a feature-length collection of short films about Paris and love. "Une Aventure (Only the Night)” was another role as a femme fatale, directed by Xavier Giannoli.

But it was thanks to "Swimming Pool” (co-starring Charlotte Rampling) that Americans discovered France's star, Ludivine Sagnier. They loved the scintillating young blonde so much that director François Ozon's film became, at the time of its release, one of the US' biggest-grossing foreign movies.

Sagnier had on that occasion a double exposure at Cannes, since she played the title role in Claude Miller's "Little Lili” (based on Chekhov's play "The Seagull”).

Yet another facet of her talent was revealed in her role of the mischievous ‘Tink' (a.k.a. Tinker Bell) in P.J. Hogan's "Peter Pan.”

Sagnier has worked with Francois Ozon more often than any other actress and starred in his features "Water Drops on Burning Rocks” and "8 Women,” which features a galaxy of famous French actresses including Catherine Deneuve and Isabelle Huppert.

Early work in Sagnier's feature career includes Diane Kurys' "The Children of the Century,” with Juliette Binoche and Benoît Magimel; Charles Matton's "Rembrandt,” with Klaus Maria Brandauer; Laurent Tuel's "Jeu d'Enfants;” Yvan Attal's "My Wife is an Actress,” with Charlotte Gainsbourg and Terence Stamp; and Pascal Bonitzer's "Petites Coupures,” with Daniel Auteuil and Kristin Scott-Thomas.
