Bernard Giraudeau – Water Drops on Burning Rocks (2000)

November 22, 2011 in Sexy Older Men

One of my favorite French actors is Bernard Giraudeau.  The first film that I can recall having seen him in was Water Drops on Burning Rocks — Gouttes d’eau sur pierres brûlantes (original title) – in which he plays a 50 year old man in love with a 20 year old boy in 1970s Germany.  While not my favorite movie, I did enjoy the subject matter.

Since then I’ve seen Giraudeau in several other films, one that was particularly bizarre, That Day — Ce jour-là (original title) – in which he plays psychopath.  This dark comedy was entered into the 2003 Cannes Film Festival.

Giraudeau was born June 18, 1947.  He died July 17, 2010 after having battled cancer for several years.
