Maurice Garrel, 1923 - 2011

In today's Libération, Didier Péron remembers Maurice Garrel, who passed away on Saturday at the age of 88. Father of producer Thierry Garrel and director Philippe and, of course, grandfather of Louis and Esther, Maurice Garrel performed in over a hundred films and was twice nominated for a César for best supporting actor: in 1991 for Christian Vincent's La Discrète and in 2005 for Arnaud Desplechin's Kings and Queen. In a career spanning over five decades, Garrel appeared in films as varied as François Truffaut's The Soft Skin, Jacques Rivette's Merry-Go-Round, Claude Lelouch's Edith and Marcel, Claude Chabrol's Nada and Claude Sautet's A Heart in Winter.

He’s especially touching in Patrice Chereau’s “Sion Frere” and his son’s masterpiece “Les Amants Reguliers.”
