|Fanny Ardant (1949 - )|
|The Woman Next Door (La femme d'a cote) (1981) [Mathilde Bauchard]: Commits suicide by shooting herself in the head, after she does the same to Gerard Depardieu. We see her place the gun barrel to her temple, then hear the shot and see the flash from outside the house. Her body is not shown afterwards.
Elizabeth (1998) [Mary de Guise]: Murdered off-screen (exact method unspecified) by Geoffrey Rush in her bed. Her body is shown afterwards when her son discovers her the next morning and covers her up. (Nudity alert: Full frontal; although director Shekhar Kapur confirms on the DVD audio commentary that a body double was used.)
The Scent of Blood (L'Odore del sangue) (2004) [Silvia]: Reportedly killed (I don't know the exact method, or whether it's murder or suicide). I haven't seen this, but have only seen a still photo on the web showing her lying in the morgue with numerous small wounds or contusions on her torso. (Nudity alert: Topless in morgue scene; not a body double this time) (Thanks to Simona)
