French actor. Appeared in films: "Disseminated", "High blonde in black boots, high-return blondes," "Toy", "bait" (Nevezuchie "), shot an umbrella," "Partners" ( "pop"), "fugitives", "left from the elevator, 1001, one recipe enamored cooks, etc. Set the documentary" Tell me about Che. "

Pierre Richard Maurice Charles Leopold Defey born on August 16, 1934 in Valensene, respectable family in the largest textile manufacturer.

While studying in the hostel, he used every opportunity to play the Clown, ably parodiruya others. "I started to learn a profession in the hostel, to save his skin" - pleasantry notices Pierre Richard.

He should have done a brilliant career in public service, either in the private sector. But Pierre, say his friends, was "rescued" her father. Richard senior spent marital status at the races and hunting, which are usually taken with a son.

Once reaching adulthood, Pierre decides to become an actor. He left Valencia and goes in search of artistic happiness in Paris. Pierre came to the famous Charles Dyullena drama courses, then the period near the Jean Vilar. However, he has worked mainly on the outputs, while Richard is clearly not have the patience to live in anticipation "of this role, besides its seriously carries variety.

Together with his friend Victor Lanu Richard wrote a short comedy sketches, and for several years in favor with them on stage cafe-theaters, cabarets, and ordinary prestigious music halls.

Once they learned that Maurice Bejart is looking for actors who know how to dance, Pierre went to the show. The choreographer was delighted and offered him a place in their company.

"Disseminated" - the so-called film actor and director, Pierre Richard, released on French screens in 1969.

In the two years before that Richard will get acquainted with one of the most talented French komediografov Yves Robert, who offered him a small role in his movie "Alexander The Blessed" (1968). (For the first time, as Richard has appeared on screens in 1957 to ribbon J. Becker "Montparnasse, 19.") That Robert advised Richard to remove the very "scattered" concept which he designed in the next few years. And after a few years, has already gained huge popularity Pierre Richard in a similar situation will convince his friend scriptwriter Francis Weber try their hand at directing - so a "toy".

The names of Francis Weber′s scriptwriter and director Yves Robert are in the credits dilogii about the adventures of a high-blondes. " Nickname "tall blonde" firmly anchored to the actor after in 1972 to screen high-blonde in black boots and followed him to continue - "The Return of High-blonde" (1974). Favorite character named Richard Pierre Francois Perrin, born of imagination Weber-scriptwriter, in the future will continue to randomly screen name in the first two films Weber, director - "toys" and "Nevezuchih" (in the "pop" and "fugitive" he will be FranГ§ois Pignon).

In 1974, Richard was in a comedy by Claude Zidi "Mustard hit in the nose" ( "It starts to get angry"). Why not just scrape by Pierre Richard is a hero in the eccentric comedy by Claude Zidi "Do not lose sight of" (1975) - a modest bank clerk, whom the vicissitudes of fate thrown into separate searches krugovert assailants cash!

Satire comedy Francis Weber′s "Toy" (1976) Richard is among his most beloved. An unusual story is so carried away by the actor that he not only agreed to play its central role, but also began to finance the picture - if the cameraman would be Weber.

It appeared on the screen, the tragicomic story of relationships spoiled son of newspaper magnate and selected them in the store new "toys" - the living, and quite successful up to this unfortunate moment journalist Francois.

History is starting a bizarre farcical action, gradually grew into a deep psychological drama. The "toys" demonstrated extraordinary dramatic talent of Pierre Richard, the breadth of his creative range.

In 1978, Pierre Richard withdrew in criminal comedy Gerard Uri "Escape", where his partner was an old friend Victor Lanu.

In the "injection umbrella" (1980) Uri Gerard Pierre Richard is very ridiculous in the failure of the actor, on his own misunderstanding involved in the trial mafia gang, which takes him for the hired killer.

With GГ©rard Depardieu, he played in several films. Pierre-Richard says that initially in the movie "bait" (Nevezuchie) Weber in his other partners Lino Ventura. However, he refused the offer, perhaps not wanting to repeat the character, in many ways similar to the fact that he played in "sickener" scenario which belonged to Peru the same Weber. Then came Gerard Depardieu.

The first film newly duet "Nevezuchie" (1980) was a French record of hire, which gathered in Paris alone, more than half a million spectators. The phenomenon of the success that the director did not fail to develop in the future, based on a clash of two polar nature, the two masks, one of which is the very awkwardness, inadaptability, stupid, and another - the harsh virility, confidence, usefulness.

The starting point in the story "pop" (1983) is largely similar to the string "Nevezuchih. Richard hero, this time more sedate (but not so as not to vlyapatsya into another scrape), and much more sentimental (which in no small measure contributed to the plot), learns from his old lover that he has already become an adult son. The same news story, it staggering another admirer of its youth - assertive newspaper reporter, Jean Lucas, a hero Depardieu. The film is especially interesting to see how a fun couple Richard - Depardieu, two dedicated bachelor, is gradually beginning to understand the charm of his paternity status, jealously will continue to find their own character in the behavior of irrational Chad.

Melodramatic notes in a comedy with a criminal plot sounds even more strongly in the "fugitive" (1985).

Role in this picture, along with his character in "Toys," Pierre Richard is considered the best in his creative biography. In assessing the actor′s own work has its own logic. In the nature of the hero of Richard in the "fugitive", albeit not as fully as in the "toys", the actor sold repeatedly expressed a desire to saturation character comedy genre in other colors, dramatic depth role.

In another comedy Edouard Molinaro "left from the elevator" hero Richard again gets into ridiculous situations ... "In all my roles is part of me - shy, not being able to communicate with people with slow reaction - said Richard. - I really become a constant victim of his own absentmindedness losing keys, paper, credit cards. However, I am a fighter - or can not be an actor. "

Over the years, the desire to do something different, creative against a new actor is not leaving.

In 1988, Pierre-Richard performs setting of a documentary film about the legendary Ernesto Che Guevara - a man whose image became a symbol of freedom and courage. "Tell me about Che" - the name of this 50-minute documentary tape, causing a great resonance in December 1988 at the Festival of New Latin American Cinema.

Exactly twenty years, according to the actor, he hatched on the plan of staging the film Guevara, a man whose spirit was in the power of ideas, who defied the philistine existence, "and the twenty-first, at your own risk, took a video camera, went to Cuba.

In Cuba, Pierre Richard in memory of his most popular character jokingly dubbed "Zapata Negro" - "black boots". During the month, Pierre Richard, along with his small crew wheel around the country, talking with people close to knowing of Che Guevara, met with his sister, the eldest daughter Ilditoy, studied archival materials related to the life of Che and his revolutionary struggle, has seen thousands of meters of film newsreel.

"Otshelnichestvo and rebellion, these two properties of Th, I feel in myself since childhood - said Pierre Richard.

- With normal rebellion for the right to control their destiny and started my acting life. "

Depardieu has called his friend to put Avinonskogo theater festival "Le Nozze di Figaro" and the most played title role, but Richard, gripping eternal doubts, and not decided.

For years, Richard suffered from an inferiority complex, considered himself a good actor and the other called himself a servant of his hero. Over the years, this feeling is almost gone. But now he is responding to painful failure. Pierre is very upset when could not find itself in the list of 30 best actors of France, who published a magazine Evenman zhedi du ":" As if I did not exist. " Founded Richard Film "Fidelina movie dealing with both production and rental of paintings, has flourished.

According to Richard, a comedy - the most difficult genres of film, in which each frame requires a mathematical calculation. Today, a comedy in crisis. It is vulgar to discredit the tape, so the same is not interesting scenarios.

Pierre Richard is doing what it was really interesting. But this does not always bring success. The film "chess game" where he plays an unexpected role for a pastor in France failed.

In early 1994, Richard was in Moscow. "Before I break all the doors widely, ranging from the Customs, - enthusiastically explains the actor. - Open closed in museums these days ... But most importantly, I could not make a move on the street that I can not stop my fans ... One night on Red Square, two old women to learn me, crying on my chest and shadow cross. And I realized that between me and the Russian people, there is some inexplicable love alchemy of mutual attraction. "

Richard seems to finally accept the fact that he is doomed to bear his cross - to play a role - a nice and scattered, funny and awkward man, a role that brought him worldwide fame.

For years, Richard lived on a barge "Edrasht.

Wiggle Barge on the Seine in the heart of Paris, at the bridge near the area of Concord, together with a village on the water.

In the early 1990′s, not without the influence of Depardieu, who started producing wine in Burgundy, Richard bought a house in the locality Gryuisson in the south-west France. Together with two sons and beloved Aishey (with first wife divorced Pierre), he enthusiastically cultivated vineyards and get a good wine, Chateau Bel Evek.

In 1996, Pierre took off in the Georgian film director Nana Dzhordzhadze "1001 recipe enamored cooks" (scenario Irakly Kvirikadze).

In autumn 2001, Pierre Richard arrived back in Russia. This time he brought a performance of "Passion for Richard." Performances with the great comedian held with great success. Earlier Pierre Richard withdrew in the second Georgian Nana Dzhordzhadze movie "Summer, or 27 lost kisses." A painting of success was in the fields ElysГ©e in Paris ...
