Ardant’s career spans a remarkable range of roles, from her iconic performances in the films of François Truffaut to her forays into directing. Her approach to acting is deeply intertwined with her philosophy of life, where she views every role as a struggle, a chance to delve into the complexities of human nature. She believes that true freedom in acting, as in life, comes from a relentless pursuit of authenticity and a rebellion against conformity.

In “Ma France à moi,” Ardant’s character embodies this spirit. France is a woman who defies societal expectations, a reflection of Ardant’s own philosophy of life. She is a character who, despite her bourgeois background, chooses to live life on her own terms, challenging stereotypes and embracing the unpredictable.

Ardant’s perspective on aging is equally compelling. She sees old age not as a decline, but as an inevitable yet rich phase of life. Her approach is to embrace it with dignity and intelligence, rejecting societal pressures to conform to certain standards of beauty or behavior.
