François Ozon was born in Paris in 1967. He studied cinema both at the Université de Paris I, where he obtained a master’s degree, and at the prestigious La Fémis. His motion picture directing debut was Sitcom (1998), which was well received by both critics and audiences. He achieved international acclaim for his films 8 Femmes (2002) and Swimming Pool (2003). Occasionally referred to as the enfant terrible of French cinema, François Ozon has in but a few years acquired a solid reputation as an original, successful and provocative (or thought-provoking, depending on one’s tastes) filmmaker, both in France and abroad.
