Catherine Jacob

In 1988, Catherine Jacob left an unforgettable impression on film fans with her performance as the maid Thérèse in Etienne Chatiliez’s Le bonheur est dans le pré. Chatiliez, aware of her comic talent, consequently offers her parts in each of his films. She plays the beauty specialist in Tati Danielle and Madame André in La vie est un long fleuve tranquille. She has become one of the stars of French comedy, with films like La soif de l’Or, XXL, 9 mois or Les Grands Ducs. Catherine Jacob is a member of our International Jury. She’ll again meet director Gérard Lauzier, with whom she made Mon père ce héros.
