Bergman-loving French writer based in London
Gaelle is a freelance journalist originally from France, and based in London. She was introduced to film as a thought-provoking artform upon watching Ingmar Bergman’s Persona (1966). Bergman’s depiction of a tortured soul is nothing short of perfect and transformed the way that she watches films.
Armed with an incisive pen, Gaelle is sensitive to well-constructed films that raise a revelatory mirror to the audience. That said, she unashamedly loves blockbusters with a transporting plot and characters that are fleshed out.
