And then in 'Les enfants du paradis ' Arletty plays Garance, who attracts each of the male protagonists in the film to her but, to me, she is so remote and elusive she is asexual.
In 'Les visiteurs du soir' I think they are more classic, Dominique seems to be cut off from her feelings and is able to move through the world (like a man), whereas Anne, who is able to love is turned into stone.
