Miller, Claude

(1942- )
   Actor, director, producer, and screen-writer. Claude Miller studied at the Institut des Hautes Études Cinématographiques (IDHEC) before becoming an assistant to Marcel Carné, Robert Bresson, Jacques Demy, and Jean-Luc Godard, among others. He worked as production manager for François Truffaut, who is often viewed as Miller's mentor. He was nominated for a César for Best Director for his first three features, La Meilleure façon de marcher (1976), Dîtes-lui que je l'aime (1977), and the thriller Garde à vue (1981). He won a César for Best Screenplay for Garde à vue in 1982, and it was later remade in Hollywood as Under Suspicion (2000).
   Miller also received nominations for Best Director for his fifth and sixth films, L'effrontée (1985) — which won the Prix Louis-Delluc— and La petite voleuse (1988), which he completed for Truffaut after his death in 1984. La classe de neige (1998) won the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 1998. Miller was nominated for a Golden Palm at Cannes and a César for Best Director for La petite Lili (2003). He also directed Mortelle randonée (1983), L'accompagnatrice (1992), Le sourire (1994), and Betty Fisher et autres histoires (2001).
