Before becoming attracted to the world of cinema, French filmmaker Olivier Dahan's profession was more musically inclined: he worked for several music labels producing music videos. Dahan made the leap to the big screen with "Déjà mort" (1998), a drama about a group of men and one girl who tried to make it in the porn industry. His star slowly rose over the course of his next films, the children's fairy tale "Le petit poucet" (2001) and the dark drama "Ghost River" (2002), starring Isabelle Huppert. He next directed the Jean Reno-starring action film "Crimson Rivers II: Angels of the Apocalypse" (2004), written by Luc Besson. He went back to writing his own films with his next work, "La vie en rose" (2007), a biographical drama about French singer Edith Piaf. The critically acclaimed film netted actress Marion Cotillard the Academy Award for Best Actress, and it also won the Oscar for Best Makeup. After the success of "La Vie en rose," Dahan made his English language debut with a quirky road movie starring Renee Zellweger and Forest Whitaker, "My Own Love Song" (2009). His next film was a light-hearted French sports comedy called "Les seigneurs" (2012). He went back to the world of biographical films with "Grace of Monaco" (2014), starring Nicole Kidman as Hollywood legend turned European royalty Grace Kelly.
