Personal Quote:

Audrey Tautou looks like a little elf with big eyes, like a deer. She's the perfect actress for me, because she's able to do both comedy and drama. That's pretty rare in France. Most French actors are only able to play realistic. Even Catherine Deneuve plays the same way all the time. See more »

Trivia:

Had been developing a big-screen adaptation of Life of Pi (2012) for years. He had written a draft of the screenplay and been location scouting in India with cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel, but eventually dropped out due to budget disagreements. See more »

Trademark:

Makes extensive use of color grading in order to give his movies the desired (often fantastic) ambiance. See more »
