Roger Planchon

11 September 1931 to 11 May 2009

An influential stage director from the 1950s onwards, Planchon came late to film, taking supporting roles in films such as The Return of Martin Guerre (1982) before bringing his own adaptation of Molière’s Georges Dandin (1987) to the screen. Other directorial credits include Louis, enfant roi (1991) and Lautrec (1997).
