Biography

Award-winning cinematographer who apprenticed with two of the world's finest lighting cameramen, Ghislain Cloquet and Ricardo Aronovich, before making his mark shooting Bertrand Blier's bawdy comedy, "Going Places" (1974). Nuytten has since established himself as one of his country's leading directors of photography, winning Cesars for his work on Andre Techine's "Barocco" (1976) and Claude Berri's "Tchao Pantin" (1984) and a British Academy Award for Berri's "Jean de Florette" (1986). Nuytten made an acclaimed directorial debut with "Camille Claudel" (1989), which earned five Cesars and an Oscar nomination as Best Foreign-Language Film. The feature turned on a passionate central performance by Isabelle Adjani, Nuytten's former companion and the mother of his son Barnabe.
