Arnaud Desplechin

(France, 1960) His first feature, The Sentinel, was chosen for the official competition at Cannes in 1997. His next film, My Sex Life revealed a whole new generation of young actors – notably Mathieu Amalric and Emmanuelle Devos. In fact, it’s his rapport with actors that add an extra dimension to Desplechin’s films.
