Marie Trintignant Life

Marie Trintignant (21 January 1962 – 1 August 2003) was a French actress.

Early life

Trintignant was born in Boulogne-Billancourt, the daughter of actor Jean-Louis Trintignant and his second wife, French film director, producer, and screenwriter Nadine Marquand. Marie's baby sister Pauline died when Marie was nine years old and virtually stopped talking. In 1976, her parents divorced. She was plagued by extreme loneliness early on, but by her mid-teens, she was committed to acting. She had a love for animals and wanted to become a doctor, but she didn't want to pursue an acting career.

Personal life

Trintignant was the mother of four sons:

Trintignant was already married to Benchetrit at the time of her death, although the two were separated earlier in 2003.


Marie Trintignant Career


She appeared on screen for the first time in My Love, My Love, directed by her mother and starring her father. Série noire, Trintignant's first film to receive significant critical acclaim, starring Patrick Dewaere.

Trintignant appeared in Une Affaire de Femme, a French filmmaker Claude Chabrol's 1988 film in which she played a young prostitute in Vichy France during wartime. Trintignant later reflected on her role and Chabrol's influence on her career, saying, "I had always felt that I was a fraud if I did not go to extremes in showing my characters' pain," but Chabrol showed me the truth. He taught me how to thrive without experiencing false hardship." In 1991, she worked with Chabrol on the film Betty, which was an adaptation of a book by Georges Simenon.

Trintignant was involved in a big car accident in 1990 that she barely escaped. The accident had little impact on her career, and she appeared in 21 films after, including Les Amants du Pont-Neuf in 1991 and Wild Target in 1993, starring Jean Rochefort and Guillaume Depardieu. She appeared in The Apprentices, her then-husband's in 1995, and in 1998, she appeared in White Lies for Depardieu. Two of Trintignant's films were released posthumously: Janis and John, directed by her estranged husband Samuel Benchett, and Colette, une femme libre, a biographical miniseries in which Trintignant starred in Colette.

Trintignant said she loved playing marginalized people and tragic heroes on film; she loved speaking out "for those who don't deserve to be spoken about." She appeared in both comedies and tragedies.
