BIOGRAPHY OF ROMAIN DURIS
Born on May 28, 1974 in Paris, Romain Duris initially he studied to become a painter like his ancestor, the Swedish Alexander Roslin, but he was an artist full of interests and soon abandoned his painting studies and became passionate about music, especially the jazz, funk and rap genres. Luck smiles at him when in 1993, walking through the streets of Paris, he is noticed by a casting director who proposes him to Cédric Klapisch for the role of the protagonist Tomasi in Le Péril jeune (1994). This is how Duris finds himself a bit by chance as an actor, playing a rebellious teenager victim of drugs, and from this moment he enters into an artistic partnership with Klapisch.
In 1995 two other possibilities knock on his door, they are Mémoires d’un jeune of Patrick Aurignac is Everyone looks for his cat also by Klapisch, but it was in 1997 that the French actor was offered the great opportunity to act alongside Vincent Cassel is Monica Bellucci in the action movie Dobermann. In the same year the young Romain receives a new leading role in the dramatic comedy Gadjo dilo – The crazy stranger (1997) of Tony Gatlif, with which he received a César Award nomination for Best Male Promise. Other main parts follow with Déjà mort (1997) of Olivier Dahan is I was born of a stork (1998) again with Gatlif, but it will be in 1999 that Duris will again receive a nomination for the César Award for the same aforementioned category with the interpretation of Arthur in sci-fi Peut-être by Klapisch, where he plays alongside a star of the caliber of Jean-Paul Belmondo.
Always under the direction of the director who marked his debut, Romain acts in it The Spanish apartment (2002), which will follow Russian dolls (2005) and Puzzle in New York (2013). Later he was directed by the American James Ivory in romantic comedy Divorce them – Americans in Paris (2003). In fact, these are the years in which Duris’s fame begins to spread beyond the French borders and, in addition to collaborating with the filmmakers who marked the beginning of his career – such as Gatlif who directs him once again in Exils – the actor begins to be directed by new directors who notice his acting potential. One of these is for sure Jean-Paul Salomé who entrusts him with the role of the most famous thief ever in Arsenius Lupine (2004), in which he is joined by Kristin Scott Thomas ed Eva Green.
Thanks to the performance in All the beats of my heart (2005), Duris won the Lumières Prize, the Globes de Cristal, as well as the nominations for the European Film Award Award, NRJ Ciné Award and the César Award for Best Actor. In 2007 he plays the role of the playwright author of L’avaro in The gallant adventures of the young Molière, film in which he stars together with Laura Morante, Fabrice Luchini is Ludivine Sagnier and that allows him to win the Globes de Cristal again. In the meantime the collaboration with Klapisch continues with Paris (2008), but by now, given his popularity, he is entrusted with main parts, such as that of the “wrecker” Alex The heartbreaker (2010) or that of the lawyer Paul in Stolen shots (2010), thanks to which he was nominated for the César Awards, the Satellite Awards and the Globes de Criatal. It follows A new friend (2014) of François Ozon, for which Duris was nominated for the Premip César and the Lumiere Prize, e All the money in the world (2017) of Ridley Scott, in which he plays the kidnapper Fifty. In 2018 he is on the big screen first with the drama Our battles, then with the thriller Black Tide in which he plays again with Cassel.
