Jean-Jacques Annaud. is a French film director, screenwriter and producer, best known for directing Quest for Fire (1981), The Name of the Rose (1986), The Lover (1992) Seven Years in Tibet (1997) and Wolf Totem (2015). Annaud has received numerous awards for his work, including four César Awards, one David di Donatello Award, and one National Academy of Cinema Award. Notre-Dame on Fire is his most recent work, and his style is strongly reflected in this film as Annaud has said himself, “As a filmmaker, I am only interested in the close-up - where I can dive into a character and see the emotions - or opening the screen as wide as I can to show a spectacle.”
