A game about finance and diversity, the big winners on Broadway

A key figure in French cinema and theater, known for his role in the film “Man and Woman”, Jean-Louis Trintinian died on Friday at the age of 91. He “died peacefully, from old age this morning, at home, in Garda, surrounded by loved ones.

A recognizable voice among all, a magnetic presence with a hint of melancholy, Trintinian led a huge career for half a century, interspersed with about 160 roles in theater and film, from “And God … created a woman” to “Love”.

He went down in the history of cinema with Claude Lelouch’s The Man and the Woman, the Golden Palm Branch in Cannes in 1966, and won the Cannes Interpretation Award for his 1969 film Z’s “Z” and Cesar for Best Actor. “Amour” by Michael Haneke 2013. Three peaks in his career.

Death of Mary

This perfectionist with elegant modesty was also a troubled and reserved man who confessed to having suicidal temptations: “I confess that I have never been very cheerful.”

This pessimism accompanied him long before the death of his daughter Marie, with whom he had a good relationship. She died in 2003 from the blows of her companion, singer Bertrand Kant.

A few months ago, a father and daughter performed Apollinaire’s Poèmes à Lou as a duet.

This tragic death did not cease to haunt him: “I could stop my life at this moment.” Encouraged by his family, he returned to the stage, finding “therapy” in poetry and theater. The board, its “real job,” he told AFP. “We make movies a bit out of vanity,” “so as not to be ashamed.”

French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday hailed the memory of the “formidable artistic talent” that “has accompanied our lives in French cinema.” “This is a page that turns,” the head of state added, referring to the “soft voice” of the actor.

“He was the first actor to say ‘yes’ to me.” “Seven films, seven times he offered me his talent,” said Claude Lelouch on RTL radio, praising “the most beautiful voice we have heard in theater and cinema.” “He gave us his scars. He was a wonderful man (…) I owe him everything, ”he continued.

“He was someone rare, incomprehensible in a good way. Huge comedian. He worked all his life with a tape recorder in his hand, reciting poems, and at the end of his life, well, the last four years, he upset everyone by saying wonderful poems and in a wonderful way. And he made great films, of course, Lelouch, but there are also conformist, red, and finally great films, ”his ex-wife Nadine Trintignan, the mother of his children, told BFMTV.

How to contact with BB

Born on December 11, 1930 in Piolenc in the south of France, the son of an industrialist, the nephew of Maurice Trintinian, was raised in a difficult way, with a sense of honesty that never left him. A shy young man who always seemed to be in a different place, he took lessons in Charles Dallin’s comedy in Paris.

He made his stage debut in 1951 in Schiller’s “Marie Stewart” and on screen in “If All the Boys in the World” by Christian Jacques (1956). In the same year he toured with Brigitte Bardot (“And God … created a woman”, Roger Vadim). Her affair with BB provokes a lot of conversation.

After returning from traumatic military service in Algeria, the actor leaves with “Les Liaisons Dangereuses” (Vadim). His nervous and sensitive play is tempting.

Man and woman

With his cast of romantic lovers in “Man and Woman”, along with Anuk Eme, he became the most touring actor, like Belmondo and Delon. In total, he will star in about 120 films …

He has a passion for ambiguous, impenetrable, disturbing characters. He is as comfortable in the main films (“Is Paris Burning?”, Rene Clement) as in the avant-garde (“L’homme qui ment” by Alain Robb-Greier brought him the Silver Bear for Best Actor in Berlin) or political as “Z”.

He has also toured Italy, including Dino Rizzi’s Le Fanfaron and Bernardo Bertolucci’s Le Conformiste.

Jean-Louis Trintinian himself made two films, The Busy Day and The Rescuer, without much success.

Great return in 2012

In the 1980s, this nonconformist reoriented his career to theater. This does not prevent him from playing some great roles in the movie, in “See how men fall” or “Three colors: Red”, where he plays a silent former judge.

After the death of his daughter, he left the set for almost ten years, and in 2012 he returned to action in the film “Love”, in which he plays an eighty-year-old person who faces the slow agony of his wife.

He then found Haneke to play the role of an old bourgeois suicide in the Happy End at the Cannes Competition in 2017, when he offered himself the last reading of poems by Prever, Viana and Desno in the Plaiel Hall in Paris, then on tour.

Man and woman

Closing the series, he found in 2019 director Claude Lelouch and his partner Anuk Eme for the film “The Most Beautiful Years of Life”, and then “Man and Woman” 53 years later.

He married actress Stephanie Audran and then director Nadine Marquan (Trintinion), with whom he had three children: Marie, Pauline (died as a child) and Vincent. After their divorce, this racing enthusiast shared the life of racer Marianne Hepfner.

Jean-Louis Trintinian lived for thirty years near Oise (Gar), not far from his favorite vineyards. “My Midi is a bit like me: strict, not very warm. There is peace, and it suits me. “

His funeral will be private.
