He was born in Dombasle-sur-Meurthe, Meurthe-et-Moselle, and studied in Nancy, where he then remained for eleven years to work as a teacher in prisons. His experiences with students there inspired him to write short stories, novels, and finally screenplays : his 2008 film I’ve Loved You So Long won the 2009 BAFTA for Best non-English-language film.
