Type :  


Guy Gilles born Guy Chiche (August 25, 1938 - February 3, 1996) was a French film director.


He directed his first short film, Soleil éteint in 1958. He changed his surname to Gilles based on the name of his mother to create a pseudonym. After studying at the Beaux-Arts, he moved to Paris, where he worked as an assistant to François Reichenbach in 1964.

His first feature film,L'Amour à la mer ,starred Juliette Greco, Romy Schneider and Jean-Pierre Léaud. Patrick Jouan featured in many of his films. He also worked for television with productions such as Dim, Dam, Dom and Pour le plaisir.

His romantic relationship with Jeanne Moreau seemed to inspire the movie Absences répétéeswhich received the Prix Jean-Vigo in 1973.

Hélène Martin requested him to make a documentary about Saint, poète et martyr. It was released at a gay film festival organized by Lionel Soukaz in 1978, and the film was troubled by a fascist group that injured the director.

His latest films include Le Crime d'amour , with Richard Berry and Jacques Penot, and Nuit docile . He caught AIDS in the late 1980s, and in experiencing difficulties with production, he struggled to complete Néfertiti, la fille du soleilin 1994 which was released in 1996 on the year of death.

A retrospective was presented at the 31st International Film Festival of La Rochelle in July 2003.
