Critique de films

Listening, questioning, understanding, perceiving what others do not see or hear... Régine Arniaud knows better than anyone how to gather the confidences of those she interviews.

A graduate of the National Conservatory of Dramatic Art in Marseille and the Louvre School in Paris, she is both an actress and a journalist specializing in cinema and culture.

She performs in theater productions in Paris, Lyon, and Marseille, including classics like Sophocles' "Antigone" and original works like Olivier Py's "Des oranges et des ongles"... She appears in numerous TV series and films, notably in Cyril Collard's film "Les Nuits fauves," for which she is also the costume designer.

For five years, she hosted "Cinesix," the cinema magazine of M6, and then for several years, she covered cinema, culture, and trends for the two news broadcasts on M6, the 12:45 and the 19:45.

Today, she still talks about cinema in the magazine "Ci Né Ma."

Since 2015, he has been writing and directing short fiction films in his free time to further develop his technique and appreciate the unique alchemy of film sets, which is very different from the frame-by-frame animation experience
