Delpy's 2004 Film; Some Background
'Disturbing' But if Celine's future is not yet mapped out, Delpy's career path certainly is. Next year she wants to direct a feature film she has written about bloodthirsty Hungarian Countess Erzebet Bathory, who, it is rumoured, inspired Bram Stoker to write Dracula. "I just love that story," says Delpy as she recounts the tale of Bathory who is said to have bathed in the blood of virgins. "It is really, really dark... I actually had an agent who dropped me because of that script. He said it was so disturbing he didn't think he could work with me any more."
