About Patrice Leconte
Patrice Leconte (born November 12, 1947, in Paris, France) is a French film director, actor, comic strip writer, and screenwriter.Leconte grew up in Tours, and began making little amateur films at 15. He went to Paris in 1967 and studied at Institut des hautes études cinématographiques. While attending film school in the late 1960s, Leconte also worked as cartoonist, in particular for the magazine Pilote. He directed his first feature film in 1976, and had a number of major successes with comedy films that were barely distributed outside France. He first came to international attention in 1989 with Monsieur Hire, which was shown at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival and which was a radical departure from his previous work. Although he had already directed more than half a dozen features, many foreign critics, unfamiliar with his previous work, essentially treated him as a newcomer. Since then, he has alternated between films such as Ridicule and L'homme du train which have had success in the international arthouse market, and others, like Les grands ducs, whose appeal has been limited to France. He is sometimes credited as Patrice Lecomte. In the 2000s, Patrice Leconte received more recognition in the US with the successful US releases of Girl on the Bridge, The Widow of Saint-Pierre, Man on the Train and Intimate Strangers (Paramount Classics released three of these films in the US). Ryan Mottesheard of IndieWIRE wrote: "you could even argue that no other foreign filmmaker (INCLUDING Pedro Almodovar) has had as strong of an impact on U.S. arthouses." Three of Patrice Leconte's films are being remade by Hollywood studios: Man on the Train, Intimate Strangers and My Best Friend.
