Cast (feature film)

Army of Shadows (2006) as Luc Jardie
France, 1942, during the occupation. Philippe Gerbier, a civil engineer, is one of the French Resistance's chiefs. Given away by a traitor, he is interned in a camp. He manages to escape, and joins his network at Marseilles, where he makes the traitor be executed... This non-spectacular movie (do not expect any Rambo or Robin Hood) shows us rigorously and austerely the everyday of the French Resistants : their solitude, their fears, their relationships, the arrests, the forwarding of orders and their carrying out... Both writer Joseph Kessel and co-writer and director Jean-Pierre Melville belonged to this "Army in the Shadows".
Gitan, Le (1975) as Yan Kuq
Les Suspects (1974) as Kerchner
Les Voraces (1972) as Inspector
Doucement Les Basses! (1971) as Bishop
The Truth (1961) as Eparvier
Dominique Marceau is on trial for the murder of Gilbert Tellier. The counsels duel relentlessly, elaborating explanations for why the pretty, idle and fickle girl killed the talented and ambitious conductor freshly graduated from the conservatory. Was it passion, vengeance, desperation, an accident? The acquaintances of Gilbert testify, as well as Dominique's former lovers, and her sister, Annie, the studious violin player engaged to Gilbert. The evidence they give progressively paints a more finely-shaded picture of the personalities of Dominique and Gilbert, and of their relationship, than the eloquent and convincing justifications of the counsels.
Love and the Frenchwoman (1961) as Jean-Claude
The seven stages in the life of a modern Frenchwomen are disclosed by seven directors in a comedic way.
Picnic On the Grass (1959) as Etienne
Etienne Alexis, a candidate for president of the new Europe, is a scientist promoting artificial insemination for social betterment and therapy to eliminate passion. His wealthy household (his family owns chemical corporations that will profit from his ideas) is stiff, intellectual, and sterile. To celebrate his engagement to a German cousin, he hosts an aseptic picnic, where mother nature asserts herself. A shepherd's flute conjures a windstorm that throws Alexis together with the luscious Nénette, a farm lass who wants to have a baby but is unimpressed with men.
Keepers, The (1958) as Emery
A rebellious and wealthy young man is committed by his father to a mental home, escapes to Paris, and is returned before he can prove his sanity.
Diabolique (1955) as Michel Delasalle
A cruel man's wife and lover plot to kill him.
