When love and art walk together.
Through film history, many iconic couples were formed during the production of a movie and many of the couples became longtime collaborators, having careers where their relationship and filmmaking walked side by side – at least in the time they were together.
With that in mind, here is a selection of movies where a filmmaker directed his partner, focusing on productions made during the time they were together, not that there won’t be any collaboration between a director and actress after they split up. Also, some of the couples from the list did not actually get married, but are considered because they were partners for some time.
If you think any famous couple should be on the list, please leave their names and the recommendation of one or more films they made together in the comment section below.
So, here are 10 amazing movies where a filmmaker directed his partner.
10. François Truffaut and Fanny Ardant: Confidentially Yours (1983)
In 1983, legendary French director François Truffaut and his partner Fanny Ardant came together once again – they had already worked on “The Woman Next Door” (1981) – for the movie that would be the last in Truffaut’s career: “Confidentially Yours”.
In the film, Ardant plays Barbara Becker, a secretary who leads private investigations to prove that her boss is innocent of killing the lover of his wife. Although not the strongest or the most acclaimed work by critics and the audience in Truffaut’s career, this is a great thriller and a good career-ending film for one of the greatest filmmakers from the 20th century, with an amazing performance by Ardant.
Having great mise en scène by Truffaut, allied with the strong acting by Ardant and the good character arc of Barbara Becker, this movie should → continue…
