Brialy, Jean-Claude
(March 30, 1933, Aumale [now Sour el Ghozlane], Algeria-May 30, 2007, Mon-thyon, Seine-et-Marne, France)
   The son of a French army colonel, he graduated from the Strasbourg Conservatory and made his stage debut as an actor at the Centre Dramatique de l'Est. During his military service in Germany with the French army's Cinematographic Service, he be­friended cinematographer Pierre Lhomme. Thanks to his new friend, he met the future great names of the Nouvelle Vague. From 1956 (Elena et les Hommes / Elena e le uomini / UK and USA: Paris Does Strange Things, Jean Renoir, France / Italy) to 2007 (Vous êtes de la police?, Romuald Beugnon), he played supporting and leading roles in more than 160 movies, notably directed by Jacques Rivette (1956 Le Coup du Berger / USA: Fool's Mate, short; 1960 Paris nous appartient / UK: Paris Is Ours / USA: Paris Belongs to Us), Eric Rohmer (1956 La Sonate à Kreutzer, short; 1970 Le Genou de Claire / UK and USA: Claire's Knee), Claude Chabrol (1958 Le Beau Serge / UK: Bitter Reunion / USA: Handsome Serge; 1959 Les Cousins / USA: The Cousins; 1961 Les Godelureaux / I bellimbusti / UK and USA: Wise Guys, France / Italy; 1986 Inspecteur Lavar-din), François Truffaut (1959 Les Quatre Cents Coups / UK: The Four Hundred Blows / UK and USA: The 400 Blows; 1968 La Mariée était en noir / La sposa in nero / UK and USA: The Bride Wore Black, France / Italy), Jean-Luc Godard (1959 Charlotte et Véronique ou Tous les Garçons s'appellent Patrick / UK and USA: All the Boys Are Called Patrick, short; 1961 Une Femme est une Femme / la donna è donna / USA: A Woman Is a Woman, France / Italy), Mauro Bolognini (1959 La notte brava / Les Garçons / UK: Bad Girls Don't Cry / On Any Street / USA: The Big Night, France / Italy), and Luis Bunuel (1974 Le Fantôme de la Liberté / Il fanatasma della lib-ertà / UK: The Phantom of Liberty / USA: The Specter of Freedom, France / Italy). He authored three auto­biographical books (the first one was a huge success): 2000 Le Ruisseau des Singes (Editions Robert Laffont); 2004 J'ai oublié de vous dire (XO); 2006 Mon Algérie (Timée Editions).
