Audrey Tautou
Audrey Tautou was at the London screening
Actress Audrey Tautou attended the UK premiere of her latest film, A Very Long Engagement, in London's Leicester Square on Monday.

The French actress was reunited with Amelie director Jean-Pierre Jeunet to make the World War I drama.

It has already been nominated for a Golden Globe award for best foreign language film.

Tautou was joined by Jeunet and co-star Gaspard Ulliel at the Odeon West End cinema.

Tautou, 26, shot to fame in the charming 2001 comedy drama Amelie winning the role after British actress Emily Watson pulled out.

In A Very Long Engagement she plays Mathilde, who goes to search for her missing husband after the end of the war.

"The part was quite challenging, for me Mathilde is a very suffering person and I had to find this suffering. I had to fill my body with tears," she said.
