Claude Sautet( 23 February 1924 - 22 July 2000 )
Claude Sautet was a French author and film director.
Born in Montrouge, Hauts-de-Seine, France, Sautet first studied painting and sculpture before attending a film university in Paris where he began his career and later became a television producer. He filmed his first movie, Bonjour Sourire, in 1955.
He earned international attention with Les Choses de la Vie , which he wrote and directed, like the rest of his later films. It was shown in competition at the 1970 Cannes Festival, where it was well received. The film also revived the career of Romy Schneider; she acted in several of Sautet's later films. In Max et les Ferrailleurs she played a prostitute, while in César et Rosalie she portrayed a married woman who copes with the reappearance of an old flame.
