Louis de Funes (Louis de Funes) - a wonderful French actor-comedian. Born July 31, 1914 in Courbevoie little Spanish nobility Sevilla (Seville), the Portuguese in an aristocratic family. His father Hizpan Carlos de Funes de Galarza (Hiszpan Carlos de Funes de Galarza) was a lawyer. September 22, 1943 de Funes married the granddaughter of Guy de Maupassant - Bartholomew Jeanne (Jeanne Barthelemy de Maupassant). After himself, he left two sons: Oliver de Funes (Olivier de Funes), by profession a pilot-pilot Aircompanies Air France, and Patrick de Funes (Patrick De Funes), a doctor by profession.

How was his childhood and young yunnost de Funes me to tell the truth, unknown. It is known only from scant articles (although there were many) of the Soviet time, which he started as an accountant, then became a furrier, shining shoes, traveling salesman, in general, do things that had no direct relation to art. Again, for some unknown reason to me, he starts working comedian in Parisian nightclubs and on radio. Seriously engaged in the piano (this is evident from childhood). Before coming to the cinema, he writes to the dramatic courses SIMON (SIMON). There he plays a romantic young people. Such role he clearly does not like. And again he returns to his "piano". At this time, starting World War II. By a lucky chance he does not get in the army. But, nevertheless, he experienced the fear of death. Literally in the first days of occupation in a restaurant where he worked Louis fell to German soldiers and ordered him to sing the voice of Marlene Dietrich. Perhaps, from this moment Louis finally decided to become a comedian. He coped magnificently with this role, in which German soldiers decided to save the life of the comedian.

After the war, Louis de Funes begins probyvat forces in kinemotografe. The first role he received in 1945 to Stella Jean (Jean Stelli) in the movie "Barbizon temptation" (La Tentation de Barbizon). But this is only the beginning, and to climb to the summit of glory, Louis de Funes will weigh more than seventy films during this and sleduyushego desyateletiya. In 1958, being no longer young, Louis de Funes invited to play in a film by Yves Robert (Yves Robert) "Not caught - not a thief" ( "Ni vu, ni connu") for the main role - the poacher Blair.

60's. It simply "is". He removed three or four films a year. De Funes removed from Yunnebelya Andre (Andre Hunebelle) in the famous trilogy of Fantц¦mas, a Uri Gerard (Gerard Oury) in the "long walk" ( "La Grande vadrouille"), and "Razin" ( "Le Corniaud"). These two films in France viewed by more than 2 million viewers. Not surprisingly, a partner de Funes was another popular French comedian Bourvil (Bourvil). Speaking of "Fantomas": planning for a. Yunnebelya was a fourth film, but with "bad people" this project could not even run. These were the "star" times for FY-Whew. Slowly but surely, Louis went to the top of the world. From an interview with Television 7 days "(" Tele 7 jours ") 1971. Louis de Funes describes his career: "I do not regret the slow development of my career. This slowness has helped me to understand thoroughly my profession. When I was still unknown, I tried to paint the details, facial expressions, gestures, minor roles, which I was assigned to. So, I bought, some comic luggage, without which it could make a career. Therefore, if we start again, then I would not have been waived by the way ".

In 1964 Louis de Funes to appear in the movie "Gendarme of Saint-Tropez (" Le Gendarme de St. Tropez "). The film, which marked the beginning of a series of gendarme Kryusho (Cruchot) and his team.

  • Alisa for Louis De Funes (Louis de Funes)
  • Louis - one of the greatest actors of the 20 th century. Why talk about his cockroaches and ungrateful children, if the movies have seen him every. His grimaces, facial expressions, gestures - is unique. There is not an actor, capable to replace de Funes, whether in Fantomas, gendarmes or miser. Not even words that can convey his game, his talent. About some of the actors say, "They are so get used to the role that in reality will never see their true. They played all the time ". Spretsirovav word on the life of de Funes, . can understand: if he was not a miser for life, . Had he not played a miser, if he were not strict with others, . Had he not played a policeman, and not loving to such incredible passionate love his wife, . Had he not played indicative vsekontroliruyuschego family man in any of his films,
    . After seeing pictures of his involvement can be seen in only one: film and life for Louis were synonymous. PS. He specifically saved his money, he knew that one day they are investing in the most brilliant film with his participation, he may even play a dramatic role, but this time, alas, it will no longer funny.
