One of the most esteemed and versatile actors of his generation, Michel Piccoli inhabited a wide range of memorable characters etching an indelible impression across the seven decades of cinema in France and beyond. Over the course of his career, he imbued tenderness, passion, and dedication in roles as varied as popes, cops, artists, and ordinary men.
To commemorate Piccoli who died this May at the age of 94, FIAF presents a small retrospective of his work, showcasing the gravity and humor, cynicism and humanity he brought to roles in films by Claude Sautet, Alain Resnais, Leos Carax, and Jacques Rivette.
Every Tuesday in September, a film will be posted online and will remain available for one week. Films will be free to stream for FIAF Members and available for a small fee for Non-Members.
