From her early days as a yéyé idol, she chronicled the passage of time, the dangers of existence and the permanence of life. Her elusive, ethereal voice expressed her melancholy and her attachment to “black bile,” one of many 4 moods outlined by the medical doctors of yesteryear, the one which drove individuals to unhappiness. “I really like nothing a lot because the wound protected by the wall of its appearances,” wrote Hardy, an distinctive lyricist, in Clair-obscur (2000).

Her buddy and former lover Jean-Marie Périer, who photographed the white-haired girl in a white jacket and shirt for a tribute ebook printed in 2011, was, as he remarked then, the identical slim, sleek creature he had first met in Paris, in 1962, “at her house, Rue d’Aumale.

It was her son, Thomas Dutronc, who broke the information on Instagram. His put up merely learn, “maman is gone.” Hardy was 80 years previous.

She spent a number of time calculating the steadiness of days and nights, pondering the virtues of equinoxes and solstices, conforming to her nature: “I merely have the isolation of the introvert,” she instructed Le Monde in 1996. “Sergio Leone, evaluating his work with that of John Ford, stated: ‘In his movies, you open the home windows. In mine, you shut the door, and if you happen to open it, you threat taking a bullet between the eyes.’ I’ve at all times lived within the torments of the eagerness I’ve created for myself. Being a misanthrope, once I get connected to somebody, it takes on huge significance. Once I was a toddler, I had inordinate emotions for my mom. I am amazed to have skilled such violence, for therefore lengthy, and nonetheless be alive.”
