Founder of the Albane Communication agency, she is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her Terrasse by Albane at the Cannes Film Festival.
Miss Figaro. – The personality you would like to see on the Terrasse by Albane This year ?
Albane Cleret.- I would like to add a musical note, because cinema without music is not cinema! So, why not a concert by Benjamin Biolay…?
If you had to keep only one memory of the Cannes Film Festival…The cancellation of the Festival in 2021: a terrible memory. For the rest, there were so many fabulous moments that I couldn’t name just one.
What is your main character trait?
Generous, and I have a certain gift of ubiquity.
Which one are you the least proud of?
My permanent feeling of insecurity.
The one you hate in others?
Your anti-stress thing?
Running. Or stay in bed watching a movie while munching on praline milk chocolate.
Your green gesture?
Buy in short circuit. And use my Project Rescue Ocean water bottle, an association of which I am one of the godmothers.
Your currency ?
“With a valiant heart, nothing is impossible”, but also a quote from René Char: “Impose your luck, hold on to your happiness and go towards your risk. Looking at you, they’ll get used to it.”
On a desert island, what would you take?
The three basics of your wardrobe?
A black suit jacket, gray jeans and a white or black blouse.
The cast of an ideal dinner at your place?
David Bowie, Steve McQueen, Winston Churchill, Virginia Woolf, Serge Gainsbourg and Ayrton Senna.
The gift you often give?
Scented candles or great vintages.
Music in your life?
All those that go with the moods of my days and my nights. It goes from Benjamin Biolay to Chopin, passing by Max Richter, Donna Summer, Véronique Sanson or Creedence Clearwater Revival.
A meeting that marked you?
My daughter, Gioia.
Traveling and getting closer to the sea, or driving along pretty country roads.
A fashion that annoys you?
No longer look alike. “Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside,” said Coco Chanel.
Your Proust madeleine?
Listen to pianist Lang Lang. It reminds me of when my parents took me as a child to classical music concerts at the Salle Pleyel.
Cannes Film Festival, May 17-28.
