Sep 11, 1904, Pierrelatte, Drôme, Rhône-Alpes, France
Though the work of Bost and Aurenche came to typify the "quality" films so despised by the New Wave directors, their earlier screenplays had often been iconoclastic, dealing with controversial subjects and espousing progressive politics. After a series of generally undistinguished films in the 1960s, the team re-established its critical reputation with two fine, intricate dramas for Bertrand Tavernier, "The Watchmaker" (1973) and "The Judge and the Assassin" (1976).
