Life and career[edit] Lelouch was born in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, the son of Charlotte (née Abeilard) and Simon Lelouch.[1] His father was born to an Algerian Jewish family and his mother was a convert to Judaism.[2][3] His father gave him a camera to give him a fresh start after his failure in the baccalaureat. He started his career with reportage – one of the first to film daily life in the Soviet Union, the camera hidden under his coat as he made his personal journey. He also filmed sporting events like the 24 Hours of Le Mans
24 Hours of Le Mans
and the Tour de France.[citation needed]. In the family of Albert Chaminade (1912-2009), player of the CSP Limoges
CSP Limoges
basketball leader, national and international referee, resistance fighter in the FFI, politician had his son who was his banker in Paris.[clarification needed] His first full-length film as director, Le Propre de l'homme, was decried by the critics – 'Claude Lelouch, remember this name well, because you will not hear it again' – Cahiers du cinéma said. La femme spectacle (1963), following prostitutes, women shopping, going for nose-jobs, was censored for its misogynist tendency. A Man and a Woman changed his fortunes and was met with favour even by the Cahiers group.[citation needed]

The 1981 musical epic Les Uns et les Autres
Les Uns et les Autres
is widely considered as his masterpiece, and his credits now add up to 50 or so films. His 1976 film, C'était un rendez-vous, purportedly features a Ferrari 275 GTB being driven at extreme speed through the streets of Paris
at dawn. The entire short is shot from the point of view of the car. Legend has it that Lelouch was arrested after it was first shown publicly.[4] In a 2006 interview, Lelouch stated that he drove his own Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9

sung by Nicole Croisille and Pierre Barouh, and more than 300 versions of the song exist.[citation needed] in 2011 he attended with Jean Rochefort, Vincent Perrot
