Hollywood actresses who bemoan the lack of good film roles for women in their forties might consider taking a leaf out of the book of French actress Gisele Casadesus.
At the age of 98, her latest film "Sous le Figuier" ("Under the Fig Tree"), in which she plays a woman who injects peace and joie de vivre into the lives of three angst-ridden young adults, is released on Wednesday.
The film follows compatriot Emmanuelle Riva's best Oscar actress nomination for her performance in Michael Haneke's "Amour". Riva turned 86 on the day she attended the ceremony in Los Angeles.
