Born in Caen but raised in Dives-sur-Mer on the Western coast of France, actor and filmmaker Bruno Romy began his cinema career creating original short films in the 1990s. Romy's first feature credit came with 1998's "Le bar des amants", which he wrote, directed, and starred in alongside friends and collaborators Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon, two dancers with roots in burlesque. After acting in the 1999 drama "Qui plume la lune?", Romy directed Abel and Gordon in the 2003 short "Je suis Lune" before giving the dancers starring roles in the visually striking feature comedy "L'iceberg". "L'iceberg" proved to be a festival audience favorite, and won several awards such as the Golden Space Needle Award at the Seattle International Film Festival and the Golden Precolumbian Circle at the Bogota Film Festival. In 2008, Romy, Abel, and Gordon directed and starred in another festival entry, the dance-themed comedy "Rumba", which featured physical movements and choreography inspired by silent film comedians. The three filmmakers collaborated yet again on the 2011 comic love story "The Fairy", another visual feast with little dialogue and lots of choreographed movement. Romy has no plans to part ways with his collaborators, and is conceiving more projects with Abel and Gordon.
