The Expressive Female Face

Filmmakers often capitalize on the beauty and openness of a woman's face. 

Marie Laforêt in La fille aux yeux d'or (1961)

Marlène Jobert in Rider on the Rain (1970)

Julie Gholson in Where the Lilies Bloom (1974)

Henna Ohranen in Krama mig (2005)

Imogen Jones in All Good Children (2010)

Ana de Armas in Knives Out (2019)

Sarah Sutherland in Like a House on Fire (2020)

Michelle Monaghan in Every Breath You Take (2021)

Polish actress Eliza Rycembel is wonderfully expressive in the 2014 drama Obietnica.

Despite the occasional shot of a hand or knee, a woman's face remains at the center of this scene from Jean-Luc Godard's Une femme mariée (1964) .
