Art & Culture 55'


1.80m tall, bold and whimsical, with an athletic stature, a heart of gold and a distinctive voice, Jean-Paul Belmondo is one of the French public's favorite celebrities, the actor of an era and a model for the younger generation of actors.


The actor has appeared in over 80 films, but he has also offered audiences his stunts, his laughter, his facetiousness, his refreshing casualness and impertinence. Cultivating the art of the counterpoint, he spanned half a century of French cinema.


This portrait, punctuated with archive footage and commented by his fellow actors and directors - Jean Dujardin, Patrice Leconte, Claude Brasseur, Françoise Fabian, Nicole Calfan, José Garcia, Cédric Klapisch and others - retraces the career of the man who embodied the spirit of French cinema.
