Jean-Louis Trintignant back on screen in 'Amour'

Bookmark and Share

CANNES, France (Celebrity Hollywood) -- It's 43 years since Jean-Louis Trintignant was named the Cannes Film Festival's best actor for "Z," and 14 years since he all but gave up filmmaking to focus on the stage.

He was tempted back by Michael Haneke's Cannes entry "Amour" ("Love"), which looks unflinchingly at death through the story of an elderly Parisian couple.

It may win the 81-year-old actor another prize. Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva bowled over an audience of journalists Sunday as a devoted couple coping with the wife's worsening health.

Trintignant said Sunday he's been in more than 100 films, "but this was the first time I was pleased to see myself on screen."

He said making it "was a wonderful opportunity - but I won't do it again."

The film festival runs to May 27.
