Jean-Louis Xavier Trintignant ([tʁɛ̃tiɲɑ̃]; born 11 December 1930) is a French actor, screenwriter and director who has enjoyed international acclaim. He won the Best Actor Award at the 1969 Cannes Film Festival as well as the Best Actor Award at the César Awards 2013.

Biography

Trintignant comes from a wealthy family. He is the nephew of race car driver, Louis Trintignant, who was killed in 1933 while practicing on the Péronne racetrack in Picardy. Another uncle, Maurice Trintignant (1917–2005), was a Formula One driver who twice won the Monaco Grand Prix as well as the 24 hours of Le Mans. Raised in and around automobile racing, Jean-Louis Trintignant was the natural choice of film director Claude Lelouch for the starring role of race car driver in the 1966 film, A Man and a Woman. He suffered a leg injury from a motorcycle accident in June 2007.

His first wife was actress Stéphane Audran. His second wife, Nadine Marquand, was also an actress as well as a screenwriter and director. They had three children: Vincent Trintignant, Pauline (who died of crib death in 1969) and Marie Trintignant (21 January 1962 – 1 August 2003). At the age of 17, Marie performed in La terrazza alongside her father and later became a successful actress in her own right. She was killed at the age of 41 by her boyfriend, singer Bertrand Cantat, in a hotel room in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Trintignant is good friends with Anouk Aimée. It was he who recommended Aimée to film director Claude Lelouch for the female lead in A Man and a Woman.

1936. Rafael, fils d'un noble espagnol, quitte l'établissement catholique français où il était pensionnaire, rappelé dans son pays par son père. Officier supérieur de l'armée franquiste, celui-ci tient à ce que son fils participe à la guerre civile qui déchire l'Espagne. Avant de rejoindre le front, Rafael est affecté à une unité dont la mission principale est de s'occuper des prisonniers et d'exécuter les éléments subversifs. Cette garnison est commandée par le Colonel Masagual, un ami du père de Rafael. Très ancien régime, ce colonel qui vit ouvertement son homosexualité avec Casado, son aide de camp, est un personnage ambigu, mélancolique, et d'une lucidité cynique. Pour preuve, cette prédiction cinglante : « Cette guerre que nous allons fatalement gagner débouchera sur un monde sordide... Dès que la paix éclatera, les Sancho Pança d'Espagne égorgeront Don Quichotte et deviendront tout puissants.

During her work as a model she poses for a chewing-gum campaign and during the photo shoot the photographer asks her to look very sad. While walking back home Auguste, a neighbour of Valentine's, drops a set of books, notices that a particular chapter of the Criminal Code was open at random, and concentrates on that passage. While driving back to her apartment Valentine is distracted while adjusting the radio and accidentally runs over a dog. She tracks down the owner, a reclusive retired judge, Joseph Kern (Jean-Louis Trintignant). He seems unconcerned by the accident or the injuries sustained by Rita, his dog.
