“I think you always need to say things as you simply feel them. That’s always been sort of my method.”
Jean-Paul Salomé decided to become a film director at age 11, but it wasn’t until after passing his science baccalaureate and studying film at New Sorbonne University that he ceased his formal studies and interned for Claude Lelouch, who hired him on the production of his film Bolero. He went on to direct two documentaries: L’Heure d’aimer in 1983 and La Petite Commission in 1984, both selected by numerous film festivals.
After making his first feature film for television, he directed Les Braqueuses in 1993. Five years later, he directed The Tourist Trap, the story of a group of French tourists lost in the middle of the United States. In 2000, he directed the ambitious Belphegor, Phantom of the Louvre. In 2004 he directed Arsène Lupin, an updated version of the iconic tale of the gentleman thief, followed, in 2007, by Female Agents. The Chameleon, shot in the United States, was released in 2010, followed three years later by Playing Dead.
After serving as president of the ARP from 2007 to 2009, Jean-Paul Salomé was re-elected to the position from 2011 to 2012, and in 2013 he was elected president of UniFrance. His latest film, Mama Weed starring Isabelle Huppert, will be released soon.
