Il Postino's Noiret loses cancer battle

Guardian Unlimited Film

After seeing Cinema Paradiso and one or two other films in which Noiret figured prominently, he became one of my favorite European actors.

See images and filmographie (listed in French today in the Journal de Montreal).

"Philippe Noiret, the French star of Il Postino and one of the greatest actors of his generation, has died after a lengthy battle against cancer. He was 76.

Noiret, the winner of two Cesar Awards for La Vie et Rien D'autre and Le Vieux Fusil, got his big break in the 1960 comedy fantasy Zazie Dans le Metro and went on to star in more than 125 films, including Cinema Paradiso, in which he played a village projectionist. "
