Claude Sautet

Claude Sautet is a French film director and screenwriter. He first studied painting and sculpture before attending a film university in Paris where he began his career and later became a television producer. His first movie, Hello Smile! (Bonjour Sourire) was released in 1956. He earned international attention with The Things of Life (Les choses de la vie, 1970), which he wrote and directed, like the rest of his films. The film revived the career of Romy Schneider; she acted in several of his films. Vincent, François, Paul and the Others (Vincent, François, Paul... et les autres, 1974) is one of Sautet's most acclaimed films. His film A Simple Story (Une histoire simple, 1978) was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. He won the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival and the César Award for Best Director for A Heart in Winter (Un cœur en hiver, 1992) and received the César once more for Nelly and Mr. Arnaud (Nelly et Monsieur Arnaud, 1995). Apart from his own directing, he also wrote screenplays for other directors like Jean Becker and Alain Chevalier.
