Aurel, Jean
(November 6, 1925, Rasvolitza, Romania-August 26, 1996, Paris, France)
   He was born in a train near Rasvolitza, a Romanian city. Having graduated from IDHEC, he was briefly a film critic for weekly review Arts. In 1948, he co-directed his first documentary short (Joan Miro). Following an experience of filmed news editor, he was assistant director to Augusto Genina (1955 Frou Frou / UK and USA: The Toy Wife, France / Italy; La figlia di Mata Hari / La Fille de Mata Hari / UK: Daughter of Mata Hari / USA: Mata Hari's Daughter, Carmine Gallone, Renzo Merusi, Italy / France). From 1956 (C'est arrivé à Aden, Michel Boisrond), he began a career of screenwriter working with such renowned directors as René Clair (1957 Porte des Lilas / Quartiere dei lillà / UK: Gate of Lilacs / USA: The Gates of Paris, France / Italy), Jacques Becker (Le Trou / Il buco / UK: The Hole / USA: The Watch, France / Italy), and later François Truffaut (1979 L'Amour en Fuite / UK and USA: Love on the Run; 1981 La Femme d'à Côté / UK and USA: The Woman Next Door, 1983 Vivement Dimanche / UK: Finally, Sunday / USA: Confidentially Yours). In 1961, he should have directed La Bride sur le Cou / A briglia sciolta / UK and USA: Please, Not Now! / USA: Only for Love, but he had to let Roger Vadim have his place after a few days of shooting. His first feature film was a documentary co-written by Cécil Saint-Laurent (14-18 / USA: Over There, 1963). He also played in two films (1973 Vivre ensemble, Anna Karina; 1974 La Bonzesse, François Jouffa).
