Michel Piccoli Retrospective at Film Forum

Image: "Les Choses de la Vie" directed by Claude Sautet

For over 70 years, Michel Piccoli (born 1925) has been omnipresent in French film, whether starring as Brigitte Bardot’s husband or Romy Schneider’s lover, or (always) leading the supporting cast; whether yearning, tentative nice guy; most insinuating of dirty old men; tormented existential hero (?); and even befuddled Pope; working along the way with a checklist of just about every French director from Godard and Melville to Rivette and Carax, as well as non-Gallic auteurs Manoel de Oliveira, Mario Bava, Marco Ferreri, Buñuel and Hitchcock — he has been so convincing as to seem typecast in each of these varied guises. This retrospective at Film Forum puts the spotlight on one of France's most talented and prolific actors.
