A Life for the Cinema

Great works of art are often born of great dreams. Only 9 years old, Jean-Jacques Annaud told his mother that he would be a film director and nothing else. The goal had been achieved long ago, and some of this resolute child's films such as The Name of the Rose, The Bear, The Lover, Seven Years in Tibet, Two Brothers and Wolf Totem are loved by millions of viewers around the world. Life in the cinema is told first-person in this amazing book.

Jean-Jacques Annaud is a member of the prestigious Institut de France and has received numerous distinctions: Film Award of the National French Academy, Knight of the National Order of Merit, Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters. Winner of the Charlemagne Medal for European Media (Karlsmedaille für die europäischen Medien), he has been internationally awarded and honoured.

About the Author
Jean-Jacques  Annaud

World-renowned for his work and film challenges, Jean-Jacques Annaud is one of the few European directors with an international career of more than five decades. Born in 1943 in Île-de-France, he first directs over 400 advertising films in Africa and France in the late ’60's, many of which win awards at major festivals. As of his very first feature film, Black and White in Color, Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film, 1977, he developed an unfailing attraction for the cultures of the world. After a French film (Hot Head, 1979) that becomes a cult classic in his homeland, he moves to Kenya, Scotland and Canada to shoot Quest for Fire which brings him international recognition (1981, César - French National Award - for Best Film & for Best Director). He then directs Sean Connery on the Italian sets and the German monasteries of The Name of the Rose (1986, César for Best Foreign Film and David Di Donatello for Best Director), based on Umberto Eco’s eponymous novel. He triumphs again a few years later by The Bear’s P.O.V. (César for Best Director). He then shoots The Lover (1992) in Vietnam, the adaptation of Marguerite Duras’s autobiographical novel, brilliantly recreating the atmosphere of colonial Indochina. Annaud directs Wings of Courage, the first 3D fiction film ever made in Imax-3D (1995). A few years later, he directs Seven Years in Tibet. In 2015, he adapts Wolf Totem, a Chinese literary phenomenon entirely shot in Inner Mongolia. In 2018, Jean-Jacques Annaud directs in Canada Patrick Dempsey in his ten-part TV adaptation of Joël Dicker's best-seller The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair (2018). His autobiography Une vie pour le cinéma is published that same year, co-written with Marie-Françoise Leclère.
