A distinguished artist on either side of the camera, Garcia earned her fifth César acting nomination for her searing performance as a desperate mother in "Alias Betty" and saw her sixth feature as writer-director, the 2010 romantic thriller "A View of Love," connect with audiences as her biggest commercial success to date.
