Irene Jacob obtained her first movie role in the 1987 film Au revoir les enfants followed by several more minor roles until her big break came when Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski cast her in the lead role of his 1991 motion picture, La Double vie de Véronique. For her performance, Ms. Jacob won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival.

An introvert by nature, Jacob has the remarkable ability to express the emotional turmoil of her characters with very few words. This was very evident when Kieslowski used her again to star alongside Jean-Louis Trintignant in Three Colors: Red, the third part of his highly acclaimed masterpiece, the Three Colors trilogy. The film, and her performance, gained huge international recognition bringing many offers from major American motion-picture studios.

Victory (1995)

Title: Victory
Released: 1995
Genre: Drama
Runtime: 99 min
Country: UK / France / Germany
Language: English

Plot Summary: Axel Heyst lives on a secluded island near the Dutch East Indies port of Surabaya. The year is 1913. While on personal business to the port, he visits the hotel owned by racist German Schomberg. An all-woman orchestra plays in the hotel each night, and orchestra owner, San Giacomo agrees to "sell" one of the girls, Alma, to Schomberg. She asks Heyst to save her from the villains and they escape to his island and live there with native servant Wang. Schomberg points sinister Mr. Jones and his two fellow bandits to that island, saying that the fortune lies ahead of them there.

Comments: Victory is storytelling at its finest and a seriously good screen adaptation of a great Joseph Conrad story, one of the best storytellers of modern times. Excellent performances by Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill, Irene Jacob, and Rufus Sewell but here the success of this film is the story itself and a director who understands and respects the material. No one could build a tale around a personality flaw better than Conrad and the characters he created are wonderfully mysterious and perplexing and a delight to meet in print or on screen.
