After his assiduous debut on stage in the 1960s, he had revealed himself to the greatest number in the cinema, alongside Jean Gabin in L'Affaire Dominici by Claude Bernard-Aubert (1973), Adieu poulet (1975) by Pierre Granier-Deferre, Cousin, cousin (1975) by Jean-Charles Tacchella, two films that had earned him a César nomination, and Yves Robert's An Elephant (1976). From 1998 to 2014, his role as a second-hand dealer, appreciated by millions of viewers, had made him an inescapable face of the small screen.
