Tragic news: yesterday night, Emmanuelle Riva, the legendary French actress, passed away at age 89.  Riva had been one of France’s most acclaimed figures, renown for her roles in Hiroshima mon amour, Thérèse Desqueyroux, and more recently, Michael Haneke’s Amour.  Riva still has two more films scheduled for the future, Paris Pied Nus and Alma, the latter of which is still in production.

Throughout her career, Riva gave audiences a number of devoted and powerful performances.  In Amour, her role as an elderly Parisian suffering from paralysis became one of the most acclaimed roles in her career, earning her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.  She will be missed.
