STOCKHOLM (AP) - Stockholm Film Festival organizers say French actress Isabelle Huppert will be honored with its 2011 lifetime achievement award for a career in movie and television spanning almost four decades.
Huppert, 53-years old, made her screen debut in 1972 and has appeared in more than 90 productions, including "The Lacemaker," "Madame Bovary" and "Heaven's Gate."
She received the best actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her 2001 role in "The Piano Teacher."
The festival's jury on Friday described her as "one of the most diverse and intrepid film personalities ever."
Huppert will receive the award at a ceremony in Stockholm during the Nov. 9-20 film festival.
