Jacques Rozier was born in Paris in 1926. After he attended the IDHEC, he directed various short films and worked as assistant director to lean Renoir for French Cancan (1955). His first feature film, Adieu Philippine (1960) was completed thanks to the aid of Jean-Luc Godard, who made an effort to find him the necessary financial backing. Because this film was a commercial failure, Rozier was forced to work in television. He was not to return to feature films until 1969, when he made Du côté d'Orouët, another commercial failure. Rozier continued to work for national television and returned to the limelight in 1985 with his Maine-Océan, which critics have considered his most significant work.
