Jean Becker is the son of famed French director Jacques Becker, and he began his career working with his father on some of the elder Becker's most famous films. He was assistant director on the gangster film "Touchez Pas au Grisbi" that gave a second life to Jean Gabin's acting career. He apprenticed under his father for several years, until the elder Becker's final film "Le Trou," a thriller about four prison escapees. After the death of his father in 1960, Jean Becker proceeded to cast his own formidable shadow over French cinema. He wrote and directed the popular 1965-1970 TV series "Les Saintes Chéries," which depicted the life of a typical 1960s French couple. After a long hiatus, Jean Becker returned in 1983 to the big screen in a big way with the critically acclaimed and award-winning "One Deadly Summer," the erotic tale of a woman's elaborate plot to gain justice for her mother's rape. Becker has written and directed several films, often dark and shocking in their portrayals of ordinary people driven to extraordinary acts of both kindness and brutality.
