Jean Réno, his movies & his life

Jean Reno - Gorgeous in b&w

Note to fans of my site... After long consideration I have decided not to update this site much anymore, I still fantasise about Jean and use him as a 'model' for my novels, but because of his marriage to someone young enough to be his daughter, and then them having a baby, I have lost all of my respect for him. It's taken me a long time to get to putting what I think on here and downgrading my account but I think the time is right. I hate seeing people, whom you can tell do not love each other, marriages of convenience. make me pukeespecially when it's to a lollipop headed bimbo who acts as if the cameras are there just for her.



Jean Réno, the great star of such films as Leon, aka The Professional, The Big Blue, Roseanna's Grave, Les Visiteurs, Ronin, Nikita, Les Rivieres Pourpres, French Kiss, Wasabe, Godzilla and Mission Impossible, to name but a few.

Now, what can I say about this superb and wonderful French actor? well, quite a lot really... It was around 1996 when I first laid eyes on on the one and only Jean Réno. There was instantly for me, just something so charismatic about this wonderful man. He is handsome, he is sexy, and he has the most amazingly deep voice. 

Although French by adopted nationality, Jean Réno has rightfully made it to Hollywood with his acting abilities, my only qualm is; they often seem to typecast him as a baddie, or put him in some silly film parts, where he would be much more suited to the main role. 
Some Hollywood films that he made and was great in, was: Roseanna's grave, Ronin and Godzilla. Godzilla would have been absolute crap without Jean, I certainly wouldn't have watched it if he hadn't of been in it. The absolute best American film with him in though is 'Ronin', this is my absolute favourite of his many films, and they actually done him justice in that one.
I just adore him in 'Roseanna's grave', this makes his acting ability shine through a millionfold. I think he should have more roles like, Marcello.
Actually, I would love to see Jean playing the part of a Mexican bandit, remember the old Spaghetti westerns like 'The good,the bad and the ugly'? something like that would suit Jean fantastically.

This fan site, Jean Réno the movies & Jean Réno the life, will be a fan site with a bit of a difference to all the others on the net. This will be written with passion, with sentiment, with a great deal of love and much admiration. But I shall also be writing this in a very open and honest point of view, with sometimes a very critical look at the films and some of the parts that Jean has got to play in his long film career, that has spanned nearly 30 years now.

This site is always going to be freshly updated whenever I get the time. Enjoy...

P.S. Jean Réno has given me the inspiration to actually sit down and do something that I have wanted to do since I was 12 years old. I am sitting down and writing books. He gives me the inspiration; because I am writing the kind of stories that I would personally like to see him play roles as in films.

Below is a link to the kinds of novels I write with Jean in mind as the main male character. There is a small synopsis and one whole chapter for each of the four novels that I have finished.
