Her devastatingly persuasive performance as an octogenarian stroke victim was the acting achievement of the year, bar none: hot-to-trot Jennifer Lawrence was lucky to beat her for Silver Linings Playbook. Unfortunately another blow to the Oscars took place in the last 24 hours.
Riva died in Paris "after a long illness", her agent, Anne Alvares Correa, told AFP.
In her early career, Riva played the mysterious muse, lending wounded passion to her breakout role in Resnais' philosophical romance, Hiroshima Mon Amour. But Riva "was active until the end", Correa added. She was nominated at the age of 86 for best leading actress in the movie "Amour" which won best foreign film in 2013.
"She created intense emotion in all of the roles she embodied", Hollande added.
Riva got her start by joining a regional theatre troupe that then convinced her to move to Paris to become an actress. She will be seen in the upcoming "Paris Pieds Nuis" and in the final film to feature her work, "Alma", which is still in production.
The role endeared her to French cinema fans and propelled her into iconic status in her homeland.
In her later years she was more relegated to playing mothers and grandmothers but she never stopped acting.
Riva is fearless in the film (it was her first screen credit), in a performance that oscillates between moments of forlorn desire and snippets of happiness that are quickly extinguished by the realities surrounding her - as well as by flashbacks from a past affair with a German soldier that leaves her character brutalized at the end of the story.
