The Magnificent Tramp of French Cinema

Vita gazette – Jean-Paul Belmondo, one of the most famous actors of world cinema and one of the symbols of the French New Wave cinema movement, passed away. Born in 1933, known as Bébel in France, the actress was one of the youth’s idols with the vagrant and undisciplined characters she portrayed in Jean Luc Godard’s films.

The legendary name of French cinema, Jean-Paul Belmondo, has died. He was 88 years old. His lawyer, Michel Godest, explained that the actor passed away at his home in Paris and said, “He was very tired for a while. He died peacefully.” Belmondo, who starred in the lead roles, achieved immortality with films in both the art and action and comedy genres, receiving the Palme d’Or for Lifetime Achievement at Cannes in 2011 and the Golden Lion at Venice in 2016. He was awarded an honorary award at the Cesar Cinema Awards, the Oscar of France.

Belmando was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine. His family was wealthy, from the intellectual bourgeoisie class. His sculptor father was a French Algerian. (His mother is Sicilian) His mother, Sarah Rainaud-Richard, was a painter. Jean-Paul Belmando has always played the rebel, the misfit and the anarchist. But either because the rules have hitherto been character or because they were the basis of a truth, Bébel really struggled to respect them.

The actor, who boxed during his school years and devoted himself to art after breaking his nose, studied theater in the 1950s. He devoted himself first to auteur films, then to the comedy-action genre. Considered the greatest actor of the 20th century in France, Belmondo’s most famous film was 1965’s Le cerveau, which had 5.5 million views. Gaining worldwide fame between 1975 and 1985, he starred in The Professional in 1981, Tramp Lovers in the 1960s, and Crazy Pierrot in 1965.
