Au Hasard Balthazar de Robert Bresson – 1966

Anne Wiazemsky, a French novelist and New Wave actress who appeared in seven films directed by her husband, Jean-Luc Godard, died on Thursday in Paris. She was 70.

Ms. Wiazemsky expressed few regrets, though she recalled that when she was first cast by Bresson in “Au Hasard Balthazar,” she replaced an actress who had already been selected for the role.

“She lost the film because of me,” she said, “and I still feel a pang of regret for that unknown girl.” [ NYTimes 10/5/17 ]
