Didn't reply because it pertains to feelings I prefer to leave alone, but he was, in his time, THE face of action/adventure movies. To say he was huge or very popular may be a severe understatement. Belmondo was a sort of cinema by himself. He was greatly diminished for years now, so it's not a huge surprise.As we have several French Metapeeps and we are "Mr Worldwide" when it comes to forum members this sad news may be of interest to people.
Actor Jean-Paul Belmondo has passed aged 88.
I remember him from some old films from my youth but looking at wiki he's been immortalised in games and anime too. RIP.
It's Jean-Paul ! This is anal but I have an excuse, Paul is his son's nameI'm late to the Paul Belmondo discussion (RIP). I think I saw two films of his that I can remember on top of my head: Pierrot Le Fou (which my smooth brain struggled to comprehend at the time) and Le Doulos (which is a noir/gangster film which I really enjoyed).
I really want to get into French cinema at some point, especially noir/gangster films of Belmondo's era. The other French noir film I've seen was Le Samourai (with Alain Delon) and that was excellent.
Gaprindashvili spoke to the New York Times about the suit:
"This was an insulting experience. This is my entire life that has been crossed out [by Netflix], as though it is not important."
Apart from a couple of small stuff falling over because of the vibrations, it was a painless affair.Hope everyone is okay!!!
