Tribute by Frédéric Mitterrand, Minister of Culture and Communication to Julien Guiomar

Julien Guiomar has left us, after a beautiful and popular career in
film. He was part of this family of actors whose personality and
the impressive physical presence, have marked strong roles,
unforgettable as the Greek colonel in «Z» of Costa-Gavras, the
Colonel Vincent in «Papy fait de la résistance» by Jean-Marie Poiré
and in many other films of great directors.
Nelly Kaplan, André Téchiné, Claude Sautet, Bunuel and Philippe
of Broca, had been able to highlight the great talent of this actor
who faithfully continued to serve the theatre.
The disappearance of this familiar character touches us, and we
let us keep for him a deep and affectionate admiration.
