Florence Malraux had been François Truffaut’s assistant on the shooting of Jules and Jim, one of the great filmmaker’s finest films. The assistant also of Alain Cavalier, Joseph Losey but especially of her husband, Alain Resnais, whom she assisted in the production of most of her films: Last year in Marienbad, War is Over, Providence, Life is a novel, Mélo...
This experience, Florence Malraux knew how to put it in another way at the service of others, by accepting in 2009 the presidency of the commission of advance on revenues of the National Film Centre.
André and Clara Malraux’s daughter was more than an heiress, she was remarkably able to give back what she had received. Her name was famous, but she made a name for herself. She made those who had the pleasure of meeting her even better.
Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, extends his sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.
