Biography

Annaud was born in Juvisy-sur-Orge, a southern suburb of Paris, France.

He began his career by directing television advertisements in the late 1960s to early 1970s. In his first feature film, "Black and White in Color" from 1976, he used personal experience obtained during his own military service in Cameroon. The film was awarded an Oscar for the Best Foreign Language Film.

His third film "Quest for Fire (La Guerre du feu)" received two Césars for the best film and the best director.

In 1986 he directed The Name of the Rose (film), a film adaptation of Umberto Eco's popular novel of the same name.The film version, with screenplay written by Andrew Birkin, won 2 BAFTA Film Awards and was the subject of another 14 wins & 2 nominations.Jean-Jacques Annaud spent four years preparing the film, traveling throughout the United States as well as Europe, searching for the perfect cast and film set locations.He supposedly felt personally intrigued by the project, among other things because of a lifelong fascination with medieval churches and a great familiarity with Latin and Greek, rooted in his background.

For "Seven Years in Tibet", a film adaptation of the life of
Heinrich Harrer, he has received a lifelong denial of entry to China, as have starring actors Brad Pitt and David Thewlis.
