Severine Benzimra
French Correspondent


Severine Benzimra was born and raised in Montpellier, France,  the place where Truffaut directed The Man Who Loved Women. She was introduced to movies through Woody Allen, Hitchckock, Orson Welles and various westerns, because her father didn't like Disney and her mother didn't have time. She introduced herself to Ingmar Bergman, Luchino Visconti and Satyajit Ray as soon as possible. It never ended. Today she is an aspirant historian of the law as well as an aspirant historian of cinema.
