In a twist of identity perfect for BIRTHDAY GIRL's style, Russian wise guy Yuri is played by French film director
A true auteur of French Cinema, Kassovitz has been one of the leading filmmakers to emerge in recent years. Writer-director of the acclaimed drama "Hate (La
Haine)," the film won the Palme d'Or for Best Director at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival as well as Cesar (French Academy) awards for best Screenplay and Editing. He has directed the French language films "The Crimson River", "Assassins" and "Metisse".
As an actor, Mathieu won the Best Young Actor Cesar for his performance in "A
Self-Made Hero." He has appeared in such films as Luc Besson's "The Messenger:
The Story of Joan of Arc" and "The Fifth Element," and Peter Kassovitz's
(Mathieu's father) "Jakob the Liar." Most recently, he starred in the run-away
international hit "Amelie."
Through his production company, MNP, Mathieu is currently developing several new projects in both the US and France.
