Vincent Lindon is the president of the jury of the 75th Cannes Film Festival. The 62-year-old actor has two children, Suzanne and Marcel, who are each making their way in the world of comedy.
The circle is complete. On the poster of Cannes film festival in 2021 for the movie Titanium, Vincent Lindon will climb the steps of the famous palace again this year. But for a completely different reason. The ex of Sandrine Kiberlain was chosen to chair the jury of this 75th edition of the Festival, which will take place from May 17 to 28. A year after Spike Lee, the actor will therefore take up the torch and will be accompanied by director and screenwriter Ladj Ly.
For the others jury membersfans of the Cannes Film Festival will find Rebecca Hall (British-American actress, director, screenwriter and producer), Asghar Farhadi(Iranian screenwriter, director and producer) or even Jeff Nichols (American director and screenwriter) and Joachim Trier (Norwegian director and screenwriter). The actresses Noomi Rapace, Jasmine Trinca and Deepika Padukone will also be present.
In the footsteps of their father
Aged 62, Vincent Lindon was the husband of Sandrine Kiberlain from 1998 to 2008. With his partner, the actor had a daughter named Suzanne Lindon, who is also an actress. She directed her first feature film entitled 16 Printemps in 2020, at just 20 years old. Described as a “promising young director” by varietySuzanne Lindon is currently playing season 2 of In Therapy on Arte. The young woman aged 22 today has an older brother, Marcel Lindon, called Marcel Gitard. The 25-year-old is the fruit of his father’s previous marriage.
Just like his sister, Marcel Lindon was seduced by the world of comedy, but in his own way. On social networks, he stages himself in a series of episodes called “my first time with”. In 2016, Vincent Lindon made discreet confessions about his children to Marie Claire. “There is no trick or trick to escape death. It is an anguish that grips me more since I have children. Before, I felt a bit immortal, I took risks by driving too fast, putting on murges. I am not worried for myself, but for the father that I am. I want him to always be in good shape to meet any of their needs. It’s an obsession”, affirmed Vincent Lindon. A dad could not be more proud of his offspring.
