He was one of those actors who defined cool.

One of the headiest of my high school crushes; early Belmondo is such a vibrational dream for the adolescent mind. Shimmered with a warm masculine cool that made me long to be a boy.

I always wondered if Steve McQueen modeled his film persona after Belmondo.

I didn't see any of the so called Art movies growing up lower middle class in India. I was introduced to movies by the Film Club at UW Madison in early 90s. For which I am eternally grateful. And A Bout de Soufflé was one of the seminal movies that started that for me.

He was the connection I made between learning French (required, like Trig) and the actual idea of going to France some day (still waiting on Trig).

It blows that Michael K Williams died.
It also blows that the FPP headline for Jean Paul Belmondo doesn't mention the French actor's name.

so much blowing, I'm breathless.

If you don't mind watching a video in French, here is a nice little filmography for Jean Paul Belmondo (sadly without subtitles). I had no idea he was such a great physical comedian, and I really want to have a little Jean Paul Belmondo film festival now.
