He entered the cinematic history with "A man, a woman" (19Claude Lelouch), where he was a race driver who falls in love with Anouk. In 1969, he won the interpretation prize at Cannes for "Z", by Costa Gavras. In 2002, he also won a Cesar award for best actor for "Amour," (2012) by Michael Haneke. This film won a Palme d'Or.

Jean-Louis Trintignant is in three unforgettable roles
