Biography

"Here I am, this is me, I am yours and everything about me, everything you see... If only you could look hard enough I never could." (Stuart Staples, Tindersticks, My Sister) Claire Denis wrote and directed in 1988 her first feature film Chocolat, presented within the Festival de Cannes Competition. Then came a large number of works, in which music often plays an important role. No fear, no die (1990), I can’t sleep (Un Certain Regard 1994), Nenette and Boni (Léopard d’Or - Locarno 1996), Beau travail (1999), Trouble every day (Out of Competition Cannes 2001), Friday Night (2002), The Intruder (2005), 35 Shots of Rum (2008), White Material (2010).
