The actress from “Diable au corps”, an icon of great French cinema of the 1940s and 1950s alongside Michèle Morgan and Danielle Darrieux,

“Falbalas” and patatras.

A fairy has left.

At 101 years old.

Fatigue also overcomes divines.

Everything has an end, even if we can be and have been.

Micheline Presle proved it.

A fairy who played the Red Queen in “Peau d'âne” by Jacques Demy.

If there is a star paradise, she will be able to joke there with her friend Danielle Darrieux (1997-2017), whom she considered her big sister, also a centenarian, but whom she has outgrown.

No interest, she would brush it off.

The one who lived for a long time at the Maison des artistes in Nogent-sur-Marne (Val-de-Marne), received guests there and celebrated her centenary there with great fanfare in the summer of 2022, ended up fading away as if one day erase the most beautiful women of their time.

Until these hundred springs there were these blue eyes, which, like a bouquet of forget-me-nots, she made shine through shirts of dazzling shades.

This deep, amused look, ready to regain its distance as well as to dialogue.

This smile is anything but automatic.

And this deep culture which made her love cinema so much, of which she was one of the stars.
