From experimental films (Les Enfants volants, La Vie crevée, The End), trilogy film noir (A Private Affair, That woman, The Key), and offbeat comedy (Le Poulpe, Holiday) to political film (L’Affaire Gordji), passing by drama (Faut pas rire du bonheur, La Reine des connes), Guillaume Nicloux has built dense and unique works by exploring all the genres. The Nun and The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq, presented at the Berlin Festival are no exception to the rule. In 2015, Valley of Love (presented in Cannes) inaugurated a cycle of intimacy where existential quests and passionate love is the principal stakes of his films. The Ends of the World is his sixteenth feature length film. He worked with actors such as Isabelle Huppert, Monica Bellucci, Gérard Depardieu, Jean Rochefort, Vanessa Paradis, Clotilde Courau, Laura Morante. Guillaume Nicloux is also a writer, he founded the theatre company La Troupe, and teaches cinema at La Fémis.
