Jean-Louis Trintignant, 90 years old and exceptional roles


The French actor was born on December 11, 1930. Like Brigitte Bardot, he was revealed by And God created the woman in 1956. For his 90th birthday, Le Figaro returns in images on his most striking films.

He already has 90 springs. Jean-Louis Trintignant, actor poet with the bewitching voice, who in his films will have charmed without seeming to touch it, Emmanuelle Riva, Romy Schneider, Françoise Fabian, Michèle Mercier, Brigitte Bardot, was born on December 11, 1930 in the south of France. For his birthday, Le Figaro wished to offer a gift to its many admirers: the anthology of the most beautiful roles of this exceptional actor who will have worked, from 1955 to today, with the best directors of his time.

Of course, Jean-Louis Trintignant’s first talent as an interpreter is this incredible shyness that he will know how to transform into an incredible force on the screen. Facing the ogre Vittorio Gassman in Dino Risi’s masterpiece, The Fanfaron, it will be perfect to measure. It is his temperance, his returned madness, which allows this duo, a priori impossible, to live frantically along the Italian roads.

Trintignant is also the comedian of fleeting love (Wonderful Angelique), tragedy and fate (The train), tortuous or impossible loves (My night at Maud’s) and eternal passion (Love of Haneke). Sometimes against the job, he plays the cops in Without apparent mobile or the crazy killers in Cop story. The miracle is that each time, we believe in it.

Committed films do not scare him: Z from Costa-Gavras, The man who lies by Robbe-Grillet. Claude Lelouch had chosen him to live a passionate story with Anouk Aimée in A man and a woman. It will be perfect. The film will receive the Palme d’Or. But he remained the same. Nothing came to his head. He will never have taken himself for a star … and that’s why so many moviegoers love him.

Of, And God created the woman from Vadim to Love Haneke by the way The train de Granier-Deferre and My Night at Maud’s from Rohmer, Le Figaro presents an anthology in fifteen films of the career of Jean-Louis Trintignant.
