The stars at the Madame Figaro Cinema Dinner 2022

All French cinema had responded favorably, with enthusiasm and loyalty: actors, producers, directors, agents, we were all burning to meet again after these long months of pandemic that kept us apart. The meeting took place at Chez Gigi, on the roof of the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées Avenue Montaigne, a new address imagined by Paris Society, a refined Italian restaurant with a breathtaking view of the Seine and the Eiffel Tower.

On the quickly packed panoramic terrace, Sandrine Kiberlain and Marina Foïs toasted their reunion. Spritz and Italian appetizers circulated to the rhythm of loving good humor and contagious energy. We laughed, delighted to meet.

At the table, Emmanuelle Béart exchanged her theatrical impressions with Benjamin Lavernhe from the Comédie Française. The latter’s fiancée, Rebecca Marder (the revelation ofA young girl that’s alright ) finally crossed paths with another Rebecca, Zlotowski, this one under the watchful eye of Agathe Roussel.

The Eiffel Tower had long since fallen asleep as the last guests left the deserted Avenue Montaigne for the night and dreams of a sweet and exciting cinematic story.
