Biography

While best known to American audiences for his leading role in Bernardo Bertolucci's "The Dreamers", French actor Louis Garrel has earned critical acclaim for numerous parts, including several films by auteur Christophe Honoré as well as his work under the guidance of his father, renowned director Philippe Garrel. Garrel was a child when he appeared in his first feature, 1989's "Les baisers de secours (Emergency Kisses)", co-starring with both his parents. It would be over a decade before he returned to the big screen, playing in a couple of minor films before landing his part in "The Dreamers", the controversial drama of love, escapism, and the turbulence of France in the late '60s. He subsequently began his collaboration with writer-director Christophe Honoré with "Ma Mère", the story of an incestuous relationship between a 17-year-old boy and his mother (played by Isabelle Huppert). While that film drew severe criticism, Garrel's follow-up, another romance set backdropped by the late-'60s French revolutionary spirit, "Regular Lovers", earned him accolades, including the César Award for most promising actor. Garrel's work with Honoré continued with several other films, including the acclaimed romantic musical "Love Songs".
