French filmmaker Diane Kurys began as an actress with Jean-Louis Barrault's company. She went on to nominal film stardom, but didn't like roles she was getting and wasn't fond of taking orders from others. With a government grant, Kurys wrote a screenplay which developed into her first directorial effort: Peppermint Soda (Diabolo Menthe, 1979), the first of several films which delved into Kurys' own life as a child of divorce, as well as her relationships with her parents and siblings. The divorce issue manifested itself into Kurys most popular film, 1983's Entre Nous (originally Coup de Foudre), which afforded actress Isabelle Huppert the opportunity for an excellent characterization as the heroine's mother. Kurys' autobiographical cinematic odyssey continued with 1990's C'est la Vie, in which her alter-ego leading character returned to the adolescent years previously explored in Peppermint Soda.
