Paris – The French film director Jean-Jacques Beineix is dead. As the French news agency AFP reported on Friday, citing the director’s brother, Beineix died on Thursday at the age of 75.

Legix is one of the pioneers of French cinema in the 80s and 90s. His works “Diva” and “Betty Blue – 37.2 degrees in the morning” are considered cult films.

Baixix was born on October 8, 1946 in Paris. The producer and screenwriter originally studied medicine. It was not until 1964 that he turned to film and began working as an assistant director for Jean Becker. More than ten years later, in 1977, Beineix made his first short film “Le Chien de Monsieur Michel” (roughly: Monsieur Michel’s Dog), with which he received first prize at the Trouville Festival and a nomination for the César for best short film.

With “Diva” in 1981, he finally began a career that, despite a few failures, made him one of the best-known filmmakers in contemporary French cinema alongside Luc Besson and Jean-Jacques Annaud. dpa
