From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Henri Colpi (15 July 1921 - Brigue, Switzerland – 14 January 2006 - Menton, France) was a French film editor and film director.

Colpi directed the 1961 film Une aussi longue absence, which is well-known for sharing the Palme d'Or at the 1961 Cannes Film Festival with Viridiana, which was directed by Luis Buñuel.[1] Une aussi longue absence was written by Marguerite Duras, featured Alida Valli in a major role, and included music by Georges Delerue.

Colpi is also noted as a film editor with about 20 credits, including Alain Resnais' films Hiroshima mon amour (1961) and L'Année dernière à Marienbad (1963).

In addition to directing, editing, acting, sound recording, and a variety of functions in the post-War years, he was featured in a French television series, Histoire du cinéma français par ceux qui l'ont fait (The History of French Cinema By Those Who Made It) in 1974, and he continued to work into the 1990s.[2]
