Bertrand Tavernier

Bertrand Tavernier (b. 25 April 1941 in Lyon) is a French director, screenwriter, actor, and producer.



He was married to Colo O'Hagen from 1965 to 1980. His son, Nils Tavernier (born 1 September 1965), works as both a director and actor.

Tavernier wanted to become a filmmaker since the age of thirteen or fourteen years old. He claims that his cinematic influences include filmmakers John Ford, William Wellman, Jean Renoir, Jean Vigo and Jacques Becker. The first film director with whom he worked was Jean-Pierre Melville. Later, his first film (The Clockmaker, 1973) won the Prix Louis Delluc and the Silver Bear award at the Berlin Film Festival.

His early work was dominated by mysteries, but his later work is characterized by a more overt social commentary, highlighting his pacifism (Life and Nothing But, Capitaine Conan) and presenting a critical picture of contemporary French society (Ça commence aujourd'hui, Histoires de vies brisées : les double-peine de Lyon).

He won the BAFTA for best film in a language other than English in 1990 for Life and Nothing But and a total of four CĂ©sar Awards.[1]
