Starring Rami Malek, 'Tank' from Soixante Quinze and The Mill Paris follows Catherine across four different periods in her life.
Press January 24, 2023

Originally created in 1996, the Cartier Tank watch 27 years later, is back but now on the wrists of the famous French actress Catherine Deneuve and American actor Remi Malek in their new film. The film shows that even if times change, sometimes elegance remains intact, which is perfectly embodied perfectly by Catherine Deneuve.

Mill artists were tasked with recreating Catherine Deneuve in eight shots at four different periods of her life, inspired of course by her filmography. The challenge was important because this iconic actress evokes different memories and emotions in all of us. The public followed her through her career, soaking up her look, her acting, her facial expressions and her style, and our artists had to transcribe both her face and her soul.

The Mill’s Parisian team was present on the shooting and even during the casting to find the best body double with the most resembling acting. A great deal of preparation with the production Soixante Quinze work that paid off. From ‘Les Parapluies de Cherbourg’ to ‘Place Vendôme’, the film concludes with the actual Catherine Deneuve, as elegant as ever. A very beautiful and complete work, requiring Mill artists to combine new technologies like AI with traditional CG techniques.
