Claude Sautet, 76, French Movie Director, Dies

Paris, Tuesday, July 25, 2000

PARIS – The filmmaker Claude Sautet, 76, died in Paris on Saturday of liver cancer, his producer, Alain Sarde, said Monday. Famous for his depictions of French bourgeois life in the 1970s, Mr. Sautet made about 30 films including “Une Histoire Simple” (“'A Simple Story”'), starring Romy Schneider, which was nominated for an Oscar in the United States in 1980 as best foreign feature film. His other films included “Cesar et Rosalie”, “Vincent, Francois, Paul… et les Autres” and “Nelly et Monsieur Arnaud.”

“Nelly et Monsieur Arnaud,” with Emmanuel Beart and Michel Serrault, won him the prize for best director at the 1996 Cesar awards.

He worked with other French stars including Daniel Auteuil, Yves Montand and Gerard Depardieu. Born in Montrouge, a Paris suburb, in 1924, Mr. Sautet studied decorative arts and worked as a music critic at a communist paper before making his first film in 1951.
