Biography

French director and screenwriter Christophe Honoré earned considerable renown in the 2000s as a descendent of the radically experimental visual and narrative style of the Nouvelle Vague film movement. A one-time contributor to the esteemed film journal Les Cahiers du Cinéma, an early proponent of the auteur filmmaking style of Truffaut and Godard, Honoré began adapting his young adult-aimed novels into screenplays, beginning with the 2002 made-for-TV movie "Tout contre Léo" (Close to Leo), a gripping drama about a young man coming to terms with his HIV-positive diagnosis. Honoré continued to tackle controversial sexual- and gender-based terrain with the Isabelle Huppert-starred "Ma Mère" (2004) and the oddly poignant 2007 musical romance "Les chansons d'amour" (Love Songs). But it was the director's playful 2006 film, "Dans Paris" (In Paris), with its intimate yet frenetic pace and sequencing, that earned him comparisons to filmmakers of the '60s Nouvelle Vague.
