DELON / BELMONDO: THE LEOPARD AND PIERROT LE FOU
Director(s): Véronique JACQUINET – Writer(s): Véronique JACQUINET Contact Print page
Nevertheless, they grew up side by side...Belmondo, son of an artist, was a sonny boy... casual, witty, fun-loving and full of charm. Delon grew up a lone young wolf, drop dead handsome and hungry for recognition.
So it needed just a small spark to set them both onto their trajectory to stardom. Delon and Belmondo, were catapulted within just a few days of each other onto the film posters of PURPLE NOON/”Plein Soleil” (based on “The Talented Mr. Ripley”), for the one, and BREATHLESS/ “A bout de souffle” for the other.
From ‘films d’auteur’ to great box office hits, their prolific career has spanned four decades and represents the best French cinema has to offer.
