Francoise Bonnot Dies: Oscar-Winning Editor & Costa-Gavras Regular Was 78
Francoise Bonnot, a film editor who won an Oscar for Z and a BAFTA Award for Missing among dozens of credits, died Saturday in Paris. She was 78.

The France native worked with a number of top directors during her nearly 50-year career, notably editing seven consecutive films by Costa-Gavras — from 1969’s Z to 1983’s Hanna K. She won a BAFTA Award for his 1982 film Missing. She also worked with such noted helmers as Jean-Jacques Annaud — on his 1976 debut feature Black and White in Color — Roman Polanski, Michael Cimino (1985’s Year of the Dragon and 1987’s The Sicilian) and four film for Julie Taymor: Titus (1999), Frida (2002), Across the Universe (2007) and The Tempest (2010).

Among her earliest editing credits during a career that would span nearly a half-century was 1962’s A Monkey in Winter for director Henri Verneuil. They also would work together on three other films that decade and eventually were married.
