Jacques Audiard
Born 30 April 1952
Paris, France

Jacques Audiard (born 30 April 1952) is a French film director, the son of Michel Audiard, also a revered film director.

Audiard was born in Paris. At the beginning of the 1980s he successfully began screenwriting, including Réveillon chez Bob! and Mortelle randonnée, Baxter, Fréquence Meurtre and Saxo.

In 1994, he directed the film Regarde les hommes tomber, a road movie with Mathieu Kassovitz and Jean-Louis Trintignant. The film won the César Award for the best first film and the prix Georges-Sadoul. Two years later he reunited with Mathieu Kassovitz and Jean-Louis Trintignant on his second movie Un héros très discret adapted from the eponymous novel by Jean-François Deniau.

His fourth movie, De battre mon cœur s'est arrêté, received 10 nominations at the Césars and won eight, among them the awards for best film, best director, best screenplay, best film music, and best cinematography.

He also released some music videos, among them Comme elle vient by Noir Désir where all the actors were deaf-mute and interpret the lyrics of the song in sign language. The beginning of the feature (a sequence with subtitles) created a minor scandal. It displayed three women discussing politics who come to the conclusion that "it is better to be deaf than to listen to that".
