Sautet, Claude

b. 1924, Montrouge

Director

Sautet is something of a 'sleeper': although he has been an important film-maker in France for all but forty years, his work has only just begun to become known in English-speaking countries. His dissection of bourgeois social relations relied heavily on his work with Montand, Piccoli and (above all) Romy Schneider, who starred in five of his films. His most recent work has featured Emmanuelle Béart, who stars with Daniel Auteuil in Un coeur en hiver (1992) and with Michel Serrault in Nelly et Monsieur Arnaud (1995).

The application of science to modern life meant that science fiction entered into the domain of mass preoccupation, and the science fiction genre explored not only its beneficial
