Biography

Cécilia Rouaud est la fille du documentariste Christian Rouaud que l’on peut entrevoir fugacement dans les premiers plans de Je me suis fait tout petit, dans le rôle d’un épicier grognon. Son frère, Fabrice Rouaud, travaille régulièrement en tant que monteur avec Bertrand Bonello.

Elle fait ses débuts comme actrice, à l’âge de douze ans, dans La Fracture du myocarde de Jacques Fansten (1989). Cette expérience unique renforce son désir d’être... derrière la caméra ! Après une maîtrise de lettres modernes, elle débute comme troisième assistante sur le film de Gérard Jugnot, Meilleur espoir féminin (2000) et continue ensuite à ce poste aux côtés notamment de Patrice Chéreau et Cédric Klapisch.

En 2003, elle écrit et réalise son premier court métrage : Lapin intégral, interprété par Hélène de Fougerolles.

Son premier long métrage, Je me suis fait tout petit, sort en 2012 : il réunit Denis Ménochet, Vanessa Paradis, Léa Drucker et Laurent Lucas.

Four pathetic narrow minded petty criminals are mistaken for hitmen while ordered to shadow the philandering girl friend of their crime boss Carlito. As a result of a misunderstanding they get hired to accompany Léonore de Segonzac, the heiress of a big asset, on a race through Patagonia and "accidentally" kill her for the sum of four million dollars.
