Alain Corneau

[Nadine Trintignant with director Alain Corneau]

Alain Corneau died August 29, 2010. It has always been my feeling that he is underrated/unknown, perhaps because of his versatility. May 30, 2009 I had the distinct pleasure of seeing him at LACMA in Los Angeles for a Q&A after his film Police Python 357 from 1976.

In fact, Saturday, August 28, 2010, one day before his death, I happened to see his new film Crime d’amour which is currently playing in France. I talked with my friend who was French and asked if she was familiar with his work. After I mentioned a few titles, it was clear that she had seen some of his films and enjoyed them. I hope this memorium will bring attention to Alain Corneau and that you will check out his work if you haven’t already.
