Irène Tunc: French actress born 25 September 1935, Lille France; died 16 January 1972, age 36, Versailles France; car accident.
After Tunc was crowned Miss France 1954, she began an acting career. From 1965 she was muse and wife to French film director Alain Cavalier.
“Filmmaking widower Alain Cavalier’s tentative bid to turn his decades of grief into watchable cinema results in “Irene,” a documentary that starts, proceeds, and remains in the first-person subjective. Distribution outside France of this arrogant endurance test is both unlikely and undeserved.” Variety.
