Diane Kurys Biography

  • Profession: Director, Screenwriter, Producer
  • Born: Dec 3, 1948
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

French filmmaker Diane Kurys began as an actress with [[Performer~P4132~Jean-Louis Barrault'~jeanlouisbarrault]]s company. She went on to nominal film stardom, but didn't like roles she was getting and wasn't fond of taking orders from others. With a government grant, Kurys wrote a screenplay which developed into her first directorial effort: [[Feature~V37696~Peppermint Soda~diabolomenthe]] ([[Feature~V37696~Diabolo Menthe~diabolomenthe]], 1979), the first of several films which delved into Kurys' own life as a child of divorce, as well as her relationships with her parents and siblings. The divorce issue manifested itself into Kurys most popular film, 1983's [[Feature~V15914~Entre Nous~entrenous]] (originally [[Feature~V15914~Coup de Foudre~entrenous]]), which afforded actress [[Performer~P34067~Isabelle Huppert~isabellehuppert]] the opportunity for an excellent characterization as the heroine's mother. Kurys' autobiographical cinematic odyssey continued with 1990's C'est la Vie, in which her alter-ego leading character returned to the adolescent years previously explored in [[Feature~V37696~Peppermint Soda~diabolomenthe]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
