  • At once earthy and modern, yet effortlessly capable of projecting the aura of a glamorous, silent-era film starlet, French actress Marion Cotillard has achieved fame in her home country with substantial roles in such high-profile blockbusters as the Taxi series, and such critically acclaimed arthouse hits as Jean-Pierre Jeunet's A Very Long Engagement and Olivier Dahan's La Vie en Rose. The Paris native got in tune with her desire to become a performer early in life, and soon began honing her talents as both an actress and a singer. As fate would have it, Cotillard's parents were both active members of the Paris theater community who lovingly nurtured their daughter's creative talents and encouraged her to pursue a career on the stage and screen. Cotillard debuted onscreen at just 16 years old, in the 1994 Philippe Harel romance The Story of a Boy Who Wanted to Be Kissed. While Cotillard's sensitive performance in the film indeed marked the arrival of a skilled young actress, it wasn't until the release of Taxi in 1998 that audiences truly perked up to the promise of this emerging talent. Cotillard was nominated for a Most Promising Actress award at the 1999 César ceremonies thanks to her performance in that movie. She went on to appear in the second and third installments of the series while simultaneously drawing notice for performances in Haute Tension director Alexandre Aja's 1999 debut, Furia, and Gilles Paquet-Brenner's dark family drama Pretty Things -- which earned Cotillard her second César nomination. While the elusive César award had been well within her grasp twice before, Cotillard finally won the coveted trophy as the result of her role in Amélie director Jeunet's A Very Long Engagement. Cast as a vengeful prostitute who sets out to punish the person responsible for the death of her love, Cotillard was awarded the Best Supporting Actress César in 2005, cementing her arrival as a formidable onscreen talent.At this point in her career, Cotillard was an increasingly familiar face to stateside film fans thanks to supporting roles in such films as Tim Burton's Big Fish and Jeunet's international arthouse hit, yet as with any great actress, she was still willing to take the kind of risks needed to take her career to the next level. Subsequent roles in Guillaume Nicloux's A Private Affair and Abel Ferrara's Mary proved that she was most certainly up to the task, serving nicely to offset the mainstream sweetness of efforts like the airy 2003 romance Love Me If You Dare. In 2006, Cotillard was back on stateside screens, this time opposite international superstar Russell Crowe in director Ridley Scott's A Good Year. If anyone at this point had doubted Cotillard's abilities as an actress, those reservations would be put to the ultimate test when she assumed the role of a lifetime in the 2007 Edith Piaf biopic La Vie en Rose. Cast as the enigmatic French songstress who went from being a common street busker to a national icon, Cotillard found the perfect cinematic vehicle to combine her duel interests in acting and music (though audio recordings of Piaf were used in the film), and drew near unanimous praise from critics both foreign and domestic. In addition to netting another César, she captured a host of year-end accolades in the States including Best Actress awards from the Golden Globes and the L.A. Film Critics, as well as a nomination from the Screen Actors Guild. Most impressive of all, Cotillard won the much-coveted Best Actress Oscar, launching her into another level of international success and marketability. Her next roles were of the prestigious Hollywood variety, in the Michael Mann period crime drama Public Enemies, opposite Johnny Depp and Christian Bale, and the Rob Marshall musical drama Nine, alongside Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz.In 2010 she showed up as the woman of Leonardo DiCaprio's nightmares in Inception for director Christopher Nolan - and earned a spot in 2012's The Dark Knight Rises in the proc

QUOTES FROM Marion Cotillard CHARACTERS

April
Pops!
April
Mama, papa!
Macduff
My dearest love. Duncan comes here tonight.
Lady Macbeth
My dearest love. Duncan comes here tonight.
Miranda Tate
You see, it's the slow knife, the knife that takes it's time, the knife that waits years without forgetting, then slips quietly between the bones, that's the knife, that cuts deepest.
Ewa Cybulski
"Is it a sin for me to survive when I have done so many bad things?"
Sandra Bloom (Senior)
I don't know if you're aware of this, Josephine, but African parrots, in their native homes of the Congo, they only speak French?
Josephine
Really?
Edward Bloom (senior)
You're lucky to get four words out of them in English, but if you were to walk through the jungle, you'd hear them speakin' the most elaborate French. Those parrots talk about everything. Politics, movies, fashion. Everything but religion.
William Bloom
Why not religion, Dad?
Edward Bloom (senior)
It's rude to talk about religion. You never know who you're gonna offend.
William Bloom
Josephine actually went to Congo last year.
Edward Bloom (senior)
Oh, so you know.

Mal
What's a kick?

Sophie
Don't say a word. Let me talk. You missed me? Because I missed you. You're a real tyrant. It's so hard to be mad at you. But don't kid yourself, I still am. I want to talk and forget the game, just for once. Like my dress? I hesitated. Nabbed it off my sister. She has another red one, like a thermonuclear bombshell... That's the one I should've worn. I must've spent... three hours in front of the mirror. But I got there, see? I'm pretty. You better like it, or I'll kill you!
Sophie
Tell me that you love me first because I'm afraid that if I tell you first you'll think that I'm playing the game.
Miranda Tate
Suffering builds character.
Miranda Tate
Vengeance against the man who killed him, is simply a reward, for my patience. You see, it's the slow knife, the knife that takes it's time, the knife that waits years without forgetting, then slips quietly between the bones, that's the knife that cuts deepest.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
He was trying to kill millions of innocent people.
Miranda Tate
Innocent is a strong word to throw around Gotham, Bruce. I honor my father by finishing his work.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
I thought you might like to see what your investment built.
Miranda Tate
No fossil fuels. Free, clean energy for an entire city. Three years ago, a Russian scientist published a paper on weaponized fusion reactions. One week later your reactor started developing problems. I think this machine works.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Miranda, if it were operational, the danger to Gotham would be too great.
Miranda Tate
You brought me out here to show me this, Mr. Fox?
Lucius Fox
Bear with me, Miss Tate. Please keep hands and feet inside the car at all times.
Miranda Tate
[Fox uses a button and the office floor descends] This is it, isn't it?
Miranda Tate
This is it, isn't it?
Lucius Fox
The reactor is beneath the river so it could be instantly flooded in the event of a security breach.
Miranda Tate
Is Bruce Wayne really that paranoid?
Lucius Fox
I'm gonna plead the fifth on that one.
Miranda Tate
Bruce!
Miranda Tate
You okay?
Lucius Fox
You picked a hell of a time to go on vacation, Mr. Wayne.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
[to Fox] Tonight I need you.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Tonight I need you.
Lucius Fox
What for?
Bruce Wayne/Batman
To get me back in the game.
Selina Kyle
Sorry to spoil things, boys, but Bane wants these guys to himself.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
[Bruce looks at Miranda] I won't forget about you, Miranda.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
I won't forget about you, Miranda.
Miranda Tate
I know.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
How long until that core ignites?
Lucius Fox
That bomb goes off in twelve hours.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Unless we can reconnect it to the reactor.
Lucius Fox
Can you get Miranda out of here?
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Not tonight. I'm sorry.
Miranda Tate
Do what's necessary.
Miranda Tate
[to Barsad] Prepare a convoy. We must secure the bomb until it detonates.
Miranda Tate
Prepare a convoy. We must secure the bomb until it detonates.
Miranda Tate
Don't kill him. I want you to feel the heat. Feel the fire of of 12 million souls you failed.

Oh, you don't need a picture. Just look up the word "handsome" in the dictionary.

Oh, you don't need a picture. Just look up the word 'handsome' in the dictionary.
Mal
No creeping doubts? Not feeling persecuted, Dom? Chased around the globe by anonymous corporations and police forces, the way the projections persecute the dreamer? Admit it: you don't believe in one reality anymore. So choose. Choose to be here. Choose me.
Miranda Tate
That's the knife that cuts deepest
Miranda Tate

Miranda? Why?
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Miranda? Why?
Bruce Wayne/Batman
Talia. My mother named me Talia before she was killed... as i would've been if not for my protector... Bane.

Talia. My mother named me Talia before she was killed... as I would've been if not for my protector... Bane.

Talia. My mother named me Talia before she was killed... as I would've been if not for my protector... Bane.
Stephanie
If we continue we have to do it right.
Stephanie
What am I for you?
Stephanie
A friend?
Stephanie
A pal?
Cobb
If this is my dream then why can't this?
Mal
Because you don't know your dreaming!
Mal
I'll tell you a riddle. You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you don't know for sure. But it doesn't matter. How can it not matter to you where that train will take you?
Bruce Wayne/Batman
He was trying to kill millions of innocent people.
Miranda Tate
Innocent is a strong word to throw around Gotham, Bruce.
Miranda Tate
I honor my father by finishing his work.

Vengeance against the man who killed him is simply a reward for my patience. You see, it's the slow knife, the knife that takes its time, the knife that waits years without forgetting, then slips quietly between bones.That's the knife that cuts deepest.
Bane
I broke you. How have you come back? But the child. The child of Ra's Al Ghul made the climb.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
You think you're the only one who could learn the strength to escape? Where is the trigger?
Bane
But I never escaped.
Miranda Tate
But he's not the child of Ra's Al Ghul. I am.
Miranda Tate
And though I'm not ordinary, I am a citizen.
Miranda Tate
Fox showed me how to override the reactor. [in the reactor plant, Fox notices something is wrong]
Fox
Oh Dear! [back at the truck, Talia continues explaining]
Miranda Tate
Including the emergency flood. [back at the reactor plant, water smashes into the reactor and Fox makes a run for it towards a ladder and holds himself up on it; back at the truck Talia continues to explain]
Miranda Tate
There's no way this bomb will be stopped.... Prepare yourselves.[looks at Batman] My father's work is done.
Miranda Tate
There's no way this bomb will be stopped.... Prepare yourselves. [looks at Batman] My father's work is done.
Miranda Tate
Innocent is a strong word to throw around Gotham, Bruce. I'll honor my father by finishing his work. Vengeance against the man who killed him is simply reward for my patience. You see it's the slow knife that takes its time, the knife that waits years without forgetting that slips quietly in between the bones and cuts deepest.
Lucius Fox
Wayne had it built under the river. That way the chamber could be flooded if there were ever a security breach.
Lucius Fox
The reactor is beneath the river so it could be instantly flooded in the event of a security breach.
Miranda Tate
Is Bruce Wayne really that paranoid?
Lucius Fox
I won't do it.
Bane
Very well...
Miranda Tate
I'll do it! Fox, you would kill this man and yourself and you'll barely slow them down.
Miranda Tate
Innocent is a very strong word to be throwing around Gotham, Bruce.
Miranda Tate
Bruce, if you want to save the world, you have to start trusting it.
Bruce Wayne/Batman
I'm trusting you.
Miranda Tate
Doesn't count, you have no choice.
Cobb
You're waiting for a train. A train that'll take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you. But you can't know for sure. Yet it doesn't matter. Now, tell me why?

His only crime, was that he loved me.

You betrayed me, but you can make amends. You can still keep your promise. We can still be together, right here, in the world we built together.
Guido Contini
...What happened?
Luisa Contini
You open your mouth and a lie comes out
Guido Contini
What lie?
Luisa Contini
Why am I surprised? It's like breathing to you!
Luisa Contini
You're just an appetite. And if you stop being greedy you die. You take everything. And I'm empty!
Cobb
You are waiting for a train.. a train that will take you far, far away.. you know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't know for sure.. yet it doesn't matter.. now tell me why!

This place does not suit my life.
Fanny Chenal
No Max, it's your life that does not suit this place.
Tina Lombardi
I regret nothing. Except my hair.
Adriana
I can never decide whether Paris is more beautiful by day or by night.
Gil
No, you can't, you couldn't pick one. I mean I can give you a checkmate argument for each side. You know, I sometimes think, how is anyone ever gonna come up with a book, or a painting, or a symphony, or a sculpture that can compete with a great city. You can't. Because you look around and every street, every boulevard, is its own special art form and when you think that in the cold, violent, meaningless universe that Paris exists, these lights, I mean come on, there's nothing happening on Jupiter or Neptune, but from way out in space you can see these lights, the cafés, people drinking and singing. For all we know, Paris is the hottest spot in the universe.

That Paris exists and anyone could choose to live anywhere else in the world will always be a mystery to me.
