La Dentellière with Isabelle Huppert in 1977 (directed by Claude Goretta).

“She was like one of those genre paintings where the subject is captured in mid-movement. Her way, for example, of pursing hairpins in her lips as she redid her hair bun! She was The Laundress, The Water Girl, or The Lacemaker.”
