Lelouch, Claude


LELOUCH, CLAUDE (1937– ), French film director. Born in Paris, Lelouch and his mother moved through Europe during World War ii to evade the Nazis but were captured toward the end of the war and spent three months in Dachau. He made a short film at 14, and four years later a television film in the United States. In 1960 he made his first feature film, but Un homme et une femme ("A Man and a Woman"), winner of a 1966 Cannes Film Festival prize, put him in the front ranks of French cinema. He made Vivre pour Vivre (1967), La Vie, l'Amour, la Mort (1969), Le Voyou (1970), Un Autre Homme une Autre Chance/Another Man Another Chance (1977), Un Homme et une Femme: Vingt Ans Deja/A Man and A Woman: 20 Years Later (1986), and Les Miserables (1995). Later films include Les Parisiens (2004), Men and Women (2005), and The Courage to Love (2005).

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
