In the summer of 2007, the town of Dinard was set “Towards Zero” for the filming of Pascal Thomas’ adaptation of Agatha Christie’s work, with a prestigious cast including Laura Smet. She was revealed for the part of a young woman suffering from cancer in Xavier Giannoli’s “Eager Bodies”, as a murderous lover in Claude Chabrol’s ’’The Bridesmaid’’ or as Catherine Frot’s daughter in rural post-war France in “Le passager de l’été“.
She then starred in “Frontier of Dawn» for Philippe Garrel, became «Insoupçonnable» for Gabriel Le Bomin and embraced «La Sainte Famille» for Louis-
Do de Lencquesaing. She twice played alongside her mother Nathalie Baye (in Xavier Beauvois’ «The Guardians» and in Cédric Klapisch’s series «Call my Agent!») before directing her in «Thomas», winner of the best short film award at the Chelsea Film Festival in New York City.
Recently on France 2, in «La Garçonne», she witnessed a murder and took on the appearance of her twin brother to investigate in the Paris of the Années folles.
She returns in 2021 as a member of the jury for the 32nd edition of the festival in this city dear to Agatha Christie.
