The youngest daughter of divorced parents, the young Juliette takes her first acting lessons with her mother, then settles in Paris where, parallel to her schooling, she devotes herself to her two passions: painting and theater. She goes up The King is dying in his high school, and enrolls at 17 at the Conservatory of the 10th district, before continuing his training with Vera Gregh.

Juliette Binoche, who has already played Chekhov or Pirandello on the stage, made her first appearance at the cinema in 1983 in Liberty Belle, and quickly obtained small roles at Godard (Hail Mary) and Doillon (The Family Life). In 1985, Rendez-vous de Téchiné, in which she plays an aspiring actress, imposes her as one of the most promising actresses of her generation. Awarded the Prix Romy-Schneider in 1986, she gave two years later the replica of Daniel Day-Lewis in The Unbearable Lightness of Being, her first experience outside our borders. An eger of Leos Carax, who introduces her to filmmaking, she turns Mauvais sang and Les Amants du Pont-Neuf (1991), an ambitious work that will mobilize her for three years.

After two films in English (Fatale, The Stormwind Hauts), Bleu de Kieslowski, in 1993, marked a new stage in the career of Binoche, who sees his performance hailed by a César and an Interpretation Award in Venice. Thanks to her dedicated nursing composition in The English Patient of Minghella, in 1997 she won a Silver Bear in Berlin and, 37 years after Simone Signoret, became the second French Oscar-winner. In search of strong characters and fictional worlds, she multiplies period films, from Hussard on the roof (1996) to Chocolat (2001) through La Veuve de Saint-Pierre (2000).

As credible as George Sand (The Children of the Century, 1999) as a bawdy beautician (Time difference, 2002), Juliette Binoche does not abandon the cinema of author: after reuniting with Téchiné (Alice and Martin), she illuminates the disturbing works by Haneke (Code unknown in 2000, then Hidden in 2005) and Ferrara (Mary in 2005). Curious and passionate, she takes part in films that address political issues: the crimes of Apartheid (In my country), the plight of refugees (Break-in) or the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (Disengagement).

His international stature allows him to appear in blockbusters (Godzilla, Ghost in the Shell) or to work with masters of world cinema such as Hou Hsiao Hsien (The Voyage of the Red Balloon, 2008), Abbas Kiarostami (Shirin, Copy compliant for which she won the Best Actress Award in Cannes), David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis, 2012) and the Japanese Naomi Kawase (Travel to Yoshino, 2018) and Hirokazu Kore-eda (The Truth (…), 2019).

Always where we do not expect it, it offers in 2017 a parenthesis televised and plays with its image the time of an episode of Ten percent alongside Camille Cottin, that she finds the same year in Such a Mother , like girl. Despite her popularity beyond our borders, she demonstrates her loyalty to French filmmakers such as Claire Denis (the comedy A Beautiful Inner Sun and the controversial film SF High Life), Bruno Dumont (the austere biopic Camille Claudel, 1915 and the ‘Extravagant Ma Loute’ and Olivier Assayas (Summer Hour, Sils Maria, Doubles Lives).
