Emmanuelle Riva, Oscar-nominated Amour actress, dead at 89

Emmanuelle Riva, Oscar-nominated Amour actress, dead at 89

French actress Emmanuelle Riva, star of 1959 classic "Hiroshima Mon Amour" and more recently the oldest best actress Oscar nominee in a late-career revival, died Friday from cancer. She worked until last summer, when she filmed the movie Alma and also performed on stage in Rome.

A half-century later, Riva would return to both Cannes and the Oscars with Michael Haneke's Amour, a different sort of love story than the one in Hiroshima, though one that is equally doomed from the start. She was nominated at the age of 86 for best leading actress in the movie "Amour" which won best foreign film in 2013.

French President Francois Hollande said in a statement that Riva "deeply marked French cinema" and "created intense emotion in all the roles she played". But after years of working as seamstress, at age 26 she left her rural French town to pursue her dreams of being an actress in Paris.

She will appear on the big screen in Paris Pieds Nus (Paris Barefoot), released in March.

Amour stars Emmanuelle Riva, who plays an elderly, ailing woman being cared for by her husband. But perhaps "career" isn't the right word for an actor who hated the term and refused the kind of commercial movies that may have brought her greater fame both at home and overseas.

Although she received Baftas for her first and one of her last films, Riva avoided the Hollywood limelight in the time between the, .

"They say "go into the skin of a character", that sounds a bit stupid, but in fact, it's exactly that, with all the flesh and spirit, and heart".
