Revealed at the age of 14 in La promesse des frères Dardenne, Jérémie Renier quickly made his mark on the European film scene. Having just arrived in Paris, he shot François Ozon's Criminal Lovers in 1999 and continued to work on various projects. He shot with Olivier Assayas, Denis Dercourt and Laetitia Masson and made a foray into Anglo-Saxon cinema with roles in Atonement and In Bruges. In 2004, he collaborated again with the Dardenne for The Child which receives the Palme D'Or. The following year he was nominated for a César award for Violences des échanges en milieu tempéré; two other nominations followed, notably for his role as Pierre Bergé in Bertrand Bonello's Saint Laurent. Recently, he appeared in Double Lover by François Ozon, Frankie by Ira Sachs and Slalom by Charlène Favier. He will soon be in Stephan Streker's L'ennemi.
