While Daniel Auteuil is one of the most well-known actors in the French film industry, it was his role in Jean de Florette which brought him international recognition. Born January 24, 1950, in Algiers, Algeria to Henri and Yvonne Auteuil — both opera singers — he currently has completed more than sixty (60) films.
Personally, I have had a crush on Daniel Auteuil since the first time I laid eyes on him. He has such an interesting face with that crooked nose, and a beautiful smile (not demonstrated in this photo), and those deep, dark eyes.
One of my favorite roles played by Auteuil was that of Francois Pignon, in a film entitled, Le Placard (The Closet). In this film, Auteuil plays the leading role of a man who spreads a rumor that he is gay in order to keep from being fired from his job. Brilliant!
I will also recommend a couple of other films starring Auteuil. They are: Les Voleurs (Thieves), and Apres Vous… (After You…).
