Cannes to commemorate French director Claude Miller

PanARMENIAN.Net - Claude Miller will be honored on the closing night of the 65th Cannes Film Festival, The Wrap reported.

The French "New Wave" disciple died on April 4 after completing a final film, "Thérèse Desqueyroux," starring Audrey Tautou ("Amelie").

The movie will be screened on May 27, the festival's final night, in the Grand Théâtre Lumière of the Palais des Festivals.

"By dedicating the closing night to him, the Festival de Cannes, along with his family, friends, producers, and distributors, is very pleased to pay tribute to the memory of Claude Miller," the festival said in an announcement.

In a career that spanned decades, Miller was a regular presence at the seaside festival. He won the Jury Prize at Cannes in 1998 for "La Classe de Neige," a film about a young boy suffering anxiety attacks on a ski trip.

Among Miller's best known works are "L'Effrontée," a 1985 drama about a young girl growing up in poverty that starred Charlotte Gainsbourg, and "Garde à vue," a 1981 mystery about a rape investigation.

He was also associated with many other directors whose works received great recognition at past Cannes festivals. Miller worked as production or unit manager on many of Francois Truffaut's best known films, such as "Day for Night" and "The Wild Child."

He also worked as an assistant director on films from such legendary New Wave directors as Robert Bresson and Jean-Luc Godard.
