Biography[edit] Early life[edit] Malle was born into a wealthy industrialist family in Thumeries, Nord, France, the son of Francoise (Béghin) and Pierre Malle.[2] During World War II, Malle attended a Roman Catholic
Roman Catholic
boarding school near Fontainebleau. As an 11-year-old, he witnessed a Gestapo
Gestapo
raid on the school, in which three Jewish
Jewish
students, including his close friend, and a Jewish
Jewish
teacher were rounded up and deported to Auschwitz. The school's headmaster, Père Jacques, was arrested for harboring them and sent to the concentration camp at Mauthausen. He would later address these events in his autobiographical film Au revoir les enfants (1987). As a young man, Malle initially studied political science at Sciences Po before turning to film studies at IDHEC instead. He worked as the co-director and cameraman to Jacques Cousteau
Jacques Cousteau
on the documentary The Silent World
The Silent World
(1956), which won an Oscar and the Palme d'Or at the 1956 Academy Awards
Academy Awards
and Cannes Film Festival
Cannes Film Festival
respectively. He assisted Robert Bresson on A Man Escaped (French title: Un condamné à mort s'est échappé ou Le vent souffle où il veut, 1956) before making his first feature, Ascenseur pour l'échafaud in 1957 (released in the U.K. as Lift to the Scaffold
Lift to the Scaffold
and in the U.S. originally as Frantic, later as Elevator to the Gallows). A taut thriller featuring an original score by Miles Davis, Ascenseur pour l'échafaud made an international film star of Jeanne Moreau, at the time a leading stage actress of the Comédie-Française. Malle was 24 years old. Malle's The Lovers (Les Amants, 1958), which also starred Moreau, caused major controversy due to its sexual content, leading to a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case regarding the legal definition of obscenity. In Jacobellis v. Ohio, a theater owner was fined $2,500 for obscenity. The decision was eventually reversed by the higher court, which found that the film was not obscene and hence constitutionally protected. However, the court could not agree on the definition of "obscene", which caused Justice Potter Stewart
Potter Stewart
to utter his "I know it when I see it" opinion, perhaps the most famous single line associated with the court. Malle is sometimes associated with the nouvelle vague movement. Malle's work does not directly fit in with or correspond to the auteurist theories that apply to the work of Godard, Truffaut, Chabrol, Rohmer and others, and he had nothing whatsoever to do with the Cahiers du cinéma. However, it does exemplify many of the characteristics of the movement, such as using natural light and shooting on location, and his film Zazie dans le métro ("Zazie in the Metro," 1960, an adaptation of the Raymond Queneau
Raymond Queneau
novel) inspired Truffaut to write an enthusiastic letter to Malle. Other films also tackled taboo subjects: The Fire Within
The Fire Within
centres on a man about to commit suicide, Murmur of the Heart
Murmur of the Heart
(1971) deals with an incestuous relationship between mother and son, and Lacombe Lucien (1974), co-written with Patrick Modiano, is about collaboration with the Nazis in Vichy
Vichy
France in World War II. The second film earned Malle his first (of three) Academy Award
Academy Award
nominations for "Best Writing, Story and Screenplay Based on Factual Material or Material Not Previously Published or Produced". Documentary on India[edit] In 1968 Malle visited India
India
and made a seven-part documentary series L'Inde fantôme: Reflexions sur un voyage and a documentary film Calcutta, which was released in cinemas.[3] Concentrating on real India, its rituals and festivities, Malle fell afoul of the Indian government, which disliked his portrayal of the country, in its fascination with the pre-modern, and consequently banned the BBC from filming in India
India
for several years.[4] Malle later claimed his documentary on India
India
was his favorite film.[4] Move to America[edit] Malle later moved to the United States and continued to direct there. His later films include Pretty Baby (1978), Atlantic City (1980), My Dinner with Andre (1981), Crackers (1984), Alamo Bay
Alamo Bay
(1985), Damage (1992) and Vanya on 42nd Street
Vanya on 42nd Street
(1994, an adaptation of Anton Chekhov's play Uncle Vanya) in English; Au revoir les enfants
Au revoir les enfants
(1987) and Milou en Mai
Milou en Mai
( May Fools
May Fools
in the U.S., 1990) in French. Just as his earlier films such as The Lovers helped popularize French films in the United States, My Dinner with Andre
My Dinner with Andre
was at the forefront of the rise of American independent cinema in the 1980s. Towards the end of his life, Malle was interviewed extensively for The Times by cultural correspondent Melinda Camber Porter. In 1993, the interviews were included in Camber Porter's book Through Parisian Eyes: Reflections On Contemporary French Arts And Culture. Personal life[edit] Malle was married to Anne-Marie Deschodt from 1965 to 1967. He had a son, Manuel Cuotemoc Malle (born 1971) with German actress Gila von Weitershausen and a daughter, filmmaker Justine Malle (born 1974), with Canadian actress Alexandra Stewart.[5] He married actress Candice Bergen
Candice Bergen
in 1980. They had one child, a daughter, Chloé Françoise Malle, on 8 November 1985.[6] He died from lymphoma at their home in Beverly Hills, California, at 63 on Thanksgiving Day, 23 November 1995.[7] Awards and nominations[edit]
