Laurent Tirard, né le 18 février 1967, est un réalisateur, scénariste et critique de cinéma français.

Biography

Laurent Tirard a suivi des études de cinéma à la New York University, puis il a été lecteur de scénario pour Warner Bros à Los Angeles. C'est à Studio Magazine qu'il débute en tant que journaliste. Pendant sept ans, il y interviewe des réalisateurs tels que Woody Allen, David Lynch, Martin Scorsese, Jean-Luc Godard ou les frères Coen, pour une série de Leçons de cinéma dont le recueil a été publié en 2004 et 2006.

En 1999, il débute dans la réalisation avec le court métrage De source sûre, qui réunit Hélène de Fougerolles et Gad Elmaleh. En 2000, nouveau court-métrage : Demain est un autre jour, avec Christian Charmetant et Antoine Duléry. Après avoir été scénariste pour deux téléfilms, il décide, en 2004, d'écrire pour le cinéma. Il travaille alors sur le scénario du film de Julie Lipinski, Le plus beau jour de ma vie, où il retrouve Hélène De Fougerolles.

Parallèlement, il se lance dans la réalisation de long métrage avec Mensonges et trahisons et plus si affinités..., pour lequel il est également scénariste, avec Grégoire Vigneron. Il réunit un joli casting : Édouard Baer, Marie-Josée Croze, Clovis Cornillac et Alice Taglioni. En 2006, il est l'un des scénaristes (avec, entre autres, à nouveau son complice Grégoire Vigneron) du gros succès Prête-moi ta main d'Éric Lartigau, puis réalise son second long, Molière, dont le rôle titre est confié à Romain Duris. Il confie le personnage de Dorante au fidèle Édouard Baer, et Fabrice Luchini prend les traits de Monsieur Jourdain.

En 2009, il s'attèle à l'adaptation du Petit Nicolas de Goscinny et Sempé. Ce film sera le plus gros succès français de l'année 2009.
Il travaillera ensuite, à nouveau avec son complice Grégoire Vigneron, à l'écriture d'un nouveau long métrage: "Sans laisser de traces".
Ce film, réalisé par Grégoire Vigneron, sort en salles le 10 mars 2010.

Il est choisi pour réaliser le quatrième opus des aventures d'Astérix, adapté de l'album Astérix chez les Bretons.

Laurent a également un fils, Virgile Tirard, qui incarne Joachim, un copain de Nicolas, dans son film le Petit Nicolas.

The film begins in 1658, when the French actor and playwright returns to Paris with his theatrical troupe to perform in the theater the king's brother has given him. Most of the film is in the form of a flashback to 1645. Following an unsuccessful run as a tragic actor, Molière is released from debtor's prison by Monsieur Jourdain (Fabrice Luchini), a wealthy commoner with social pretensions, who agrees to pay the young actor's debts if Molière teaches him to act.
