Biography

Formation et débuts dans la comédie
Éric Lartigau était crieur chez un commissaire-priseur, avant d'être engagé comme chauffeur par le réalisateur Pascal Thomas. Il fut ensuite l'assistant exclusif de ce dernier pendant une dizaine d'années, puis l'assistant de cinéastes tels qu'Édouard Molinaro, Diane Kurys et Emir Kusturica, tournant des films publicitaires. Une de ses premières publicités comme réalisateur, Les Bouloches, était interprétée par l'animatrice Christine Bravo.

Il travaille ensuite à la télévision, sur Canal+. Entre 1988 et 1998, il réalise des séquences de l'émission quotidienne à sketch-es Guignols de l'info, puis passe à la fiction en réalisant 13 épisodes de la sitcom H, entre 2000 et 2001. Il se voit confier la réalisation de trois des six épisodes de la comédie La Famille Guérin, diffusés en 2002 par la chaine cryptée. Le programme est porté par François Cluzet et Valérie Bonneton.

Ce sont des comédiens de Canal qui lui permettent aussi de passer au grand écran : ses deux premiers films, Mais qui a tué Pamela Rose ? et Un ticket pour l'espace, sont coécrits et interprétés par Kad Merad et Olivier Baroux — avec Julien Rappeneau comme coscénariste. Lartigau apparait également dans ces deux longs-métrages, et continuera à faire l'acteur dans quelques films.

En 2006 sort son troisième film en tant que réalisateur, la comédie Prête-moi ta main, qui lui permet de diriger une autre star comique révélée par la télévision, Alain Chabat, et avec une Charlotte Gainsbourg à contre-emploi. Le film connait un joli succès critique et commercial.


Passage au drame

En 2010, il se lance pour la première fois dans le drame : il défend son quatrième long métrage, L'Homme qui voulait vivre sa vie, où il met en scène sa compagne Marina Foïs aux côtés de Romain Duris, Catherine Deneuve et Éric Ruf. Ce thriller psychologique est adapté de l'œuvre éponyme de Douglas Kennedy.

En 2014, il défend La Famille Bélier, une comédie dramatique qui fait un succès dans les salles françaises, dans lequel la jeune apprentie-actrice Louane Emera incarne la seule représentante entendante d'une famille sourde, qui se découvre un talent pour le chant.


Vie privée

Le 3 décembre 2004, sa compagne Marina Foïs a donné naissance à leur fils, prénommé Lazare (dans un petit rôle bébé, dans Prête-moi ta main), et le 25 décembre 2008, à Georges.

Il n'a pas de lien de parenté avec le comédien Gérard Lartigau.

Arnaud, jeune homme qui esquive habituellement les prises de décisions, est confronté à de multiples problèmes alors qu'il est sur le point de se marier. Soudain en proie aux doutes quand on l'informe qu'Anna, sa fiancée, en éprouve elle-même, le voilà tout occupé à courir après Anna qui joue les filles de l'air. Il est alors incapable de décider de l'organisation de la cérémonie, incapable de dire « non » à tous ceux qui gravitent autour de lui : il est happé par sa future belle-famille, fervente pratiquante de rites religieux et soucieuse de ses traditions, ne peut échapper à l'emprise d'une mère possessive et d'une sœur caractérielle, ne peut se soustraire à sa bande de copains qui organisent ses lendemains... Plus grave que son impossibilité de faire avancer les travaux de son futur nid d'amour (un vrai chantier), il s'empêtre dans un autre amour (lui aussi en chantier) : Arnaud ne sait pas comment rompre avec sa maîtresse Léa qu'il aime beaucoup, car elle est toujours à son écoute.

Luis Campos (Alain Chabat), 43, happily single, mollycoddled by his family (mother and 5 sisters, who by design established by his late father Hercule form a kind of family council known as the G7), has a successful career as a perfumer and an easy life. Tired of taking care of him, the G7 decide he should get married within a year. The problem is Luis does not want any kind of serious relationship since they ruined his first true love. After turning down all the girls introduced to him, he gets an idea: "rent" his best friend's sister, Emma (Charlotte Gainsbourg), turn her into the perfect bride-to-be, and make her not show up on their wedding day. That way, Luis thinks his family will leave him alone. Unfortunately for him, his family likes Emma and blames him when she apparently jilts him at the altar. He then comes up with an alternate plan to have Emma act horribly towards his family so they will not like her any more. The two begin to fall in love so Luis finally stands up to his family, confesses his schemes and finally settles down with Emma.
