A giant on stage
Unforgettable in Ionesco’s “The King Is Dying” – he starred less than 800 times – and in Moliere’s “L’Avare”, Michael Bouquet died on April 13 after more than 75 years of life. In “Le Promeneur du Champ-de-Mars” by Robert Gudiguan (2005) he marked cinema with the astonishing Mitron in the evening of his life.
The role earned him the Caesar Award for Best Actor, a few years later for Anne Fontaine’s film “How I Killed My Father” (2002).
On screen, she played covert roles in the films Claude Chabrol (1969 “The Unfaithful Woman”, 1985 “Chicken in Vinegar”), François Truffaut (“The Bride Was in Black” in 1967) and 1968 “La Sirène du Mississippi”). And Jaward, a masterpiece that chases Jean-Waldner in “Les Misérables” by Robert Hossain (1982).
But this giant of the arena showed his will, exhibiting the works of Harold Pinter in France and engaging himself in the service of the finest classical texts (Moliere, Detroit or Strindberg) and contemporaries (Samuel Beckett, Eugene Ionesco). , Albert Camus or Thomas Bernhard).
