André Cayatte( 3 February 1909 - 6 February 1989 )
André Cayatte was a French filmmaker and lawyer, who became known for his films centering on themes of crime, justice, and moral responsibility.
Cayatte began his directoral career at the German-controlled Continental Films during the French occupation. Some of Cayatte's earlier films that addressed his characteristic themes include Justice est faite , Nous sommes tous des assassins , and Le passage du Rhin .
In 1963, he undertook a bold experiment in film narrative with a set of two films: Jean-Marc ou La vie conjugale and Françoise ou La vie conjugale . These two films tell the same story from two different points of view. His 1973 film, Il n'y a pas de fumée sans feu, won the Silver Bear Special Jury Prize at the 23rd Berlin International Film Festival.
