After making her television debut in 2011, Alice Isaaz moved into film in 2013 with The Gilded Cage. But it was the following year that really revealed her to the public with Kim Chapiron’s sultry La Crème de la crème and then Les Yeux jaunes des crocodiles, in which she co-starred with Julie Depardieu, Emmanuelle Béart and Patrick Bruel, a film for which she also won the Revelation Award at the Cabourg Film Festival. In 2015, she made the César Revelations list, and again in 2017.

After a notable performance in Paul Verhoeven’s Elle and the romantic comedy Rosalie Blum, she played the lead in Espèces menacées by Gilles Bourdos. Her next films in 2019 are The Mystery of Henri Pick and Play. Alice Isaaz likes to change roles, moving from comedy to period films, thrillers and westerns, as long as she “plays characters who are far from her”. In 2023 she starred in Apaches with Niels Schneider and Le Prix du passage. She has also made appearances on television, notably on Netflix with Notre-Dame, la part du feu (2022), and soon on Canal+ with the legal drama 66-5.

Her next film, Vivants, is being screened out of competition at the Venice Film Festival. She has also directed a short film for the Nikon Film Festival.
