Film Festival Honors Deneuve

February 18, 1998

BERLIN (AP) _ The Berlin film festival awarded Catherine Deneuve an honorary Golden Bear for her life’s work Wednesday, but she wondered if it wasn’t too soon.

``I’m still an actress who’s hard at work,″ said Deneuve, 54. ``I’m not afraid of time. I’m afraid of a lack of time.″

The 48th annual festival is featuring a retrospective of Deneuve films, including a screening of ``Repulsion,″ the Roman Polanski thriller.

Deneuve, who is shooting a French film with Guillaume Depardieu, the son of Gerard Depardieu, said she’s too busy to watch her old movies or take stock of her career.

``I don’t want to judge my work,″ she said. ``I’m someone who is easily frightened, so perhaps I would stop right away.″
