Michel Soutter
Birth: Jun. 2, 1932
Death: Sep. 10, 1991

Motion Picture Director, Screenwriter. He was the leader of the "Group of 5", a quintet of young directors who sought to revitalize Swiss Cinema in the late 1960s. His best films were probing, low-key character studies, tinged with irony. Soutter's "Les Arpenteurs" (1972) was nominated for the Golden Palm at Cannes, and "L'Amour des Femmes" (1982) scored a Golden Bear nomination at the Berlin Film Festival. Among his other credits are "Hashish" (1968), "La Pomme" (1969), "L'Escapade" (1974), "Reperages" (1977), and "Signe Renart" (1984). He usually wrote his own scripts. Soutter was born in Geneva. Starting out as a cabaret songwriter in his hometown and Paris, he joined Television Suisse Romande as an assistant in 1961 and made his first film in 1965. He made an acclaimed return to television with the award-winning miniseries "Condorcet" (1989). His final effort was a contribution to "Films of Swiss Cinema" (1991), a five-hour TV documentary about moviemaking in his country. It aired shortly after Soutter's death from cancer at 59. (bio by: Bobb Edwards)
