    Bruno Podalydès has signed his first short film in 1992, which has attracted the attention, titled Versailles rive gauche. He won lots of awards and, among them, the Audience Prize at Clermont-Ferrand and The Best Court Film César in 1993. The next year, he shot Voila, rewarded this time to the Venice Festival.
    Two years later, with his brother Denis’ complicity, he directed his first feature film Dieu seul me voit (Versailles-chantiers), a comedy that won the Best First Feature film in 1999.
    Writting all his screenplays, Podalydès cosigns with his brother a new one, Liberté-Oléron. In 2002, he adapted a detective novel by Gaston Leroux: The Mystery of the Yellow Chamber with a lot of actors he meets again this year in this second adaptation: The Perfume of the Lady in Black.
