She later attended the Conservatory of Versailles, at which she won a prize for her acting. After a successful stage career, she began making movies, debuting in 1972 with "Faustine et le bel été". (She had made a televisiondebut the year before.) However it was her appearance in the controversial " Les Valseuses" (1974) that caused her to become known.

" Ma mère" was also based on a novel, this time by author George Bataille.
Huppert most recently appeared on the Paris stage as the suicidal

In 2005, she toured the United States in a
Royal Court Theatreproduction of Sarah Kane's theatrical piece, " 4.48 Psychosis". This production was directed by Claude Regyand performed in French. She chose to remain still throughout the entire performance, moving only her hands and face, much of the time with tears streaming down her cheeks.

Comments and critical reviews addressing her work
David Thomson on
Claude Chabrol's "Madame Bovary": " [Huppert] has to rate as one of the most accomplished actresses in the world today, even if she seems short of the passion or agony of her contemporary, Isabelle Adjani".
Stuart Jeffries of
The Observeron The Piano Teacher: "This is surely one of the greatest performances of Huppert's already illustrious acting career, though it is one that is very hard to watch."
Michael Haneke: " [Huppert] has such professionalism, the way she is able to represent suffering. At one end you have the extreme of her suffering and then you have her icy intellectualism. No other actor can combine the two." [cite web|url=http://film.guardian.co.uk/interview/interviewpages/0,,582099,00.html|title=Isabelle Huppert: Just don't ask her to play cute]
