Films with Jean Reno: The Blue Abyss, 1988

Director: Luke Besson
Cast: Jean Reno, Jean-Marc Barr, Rosanna Arquette, Paul Chenard, Sergio Castellitto, Jean Buise, Marc Duret, Griffin Dunn and others.

Luke Besson’s Blue Abyss claimed to be many Cesars in 1989, but won only awards for the best sound and soundtrack. The tragic story of a diver deep into Jacques Mayol became a classic of French cinema. In the film, Renault played a friend of the protagonist, with whom they shared a vast blue abyss.

“Operation” Stew “”, 1990
Films with Jean Reno: “Operation Stew”, 1990

Director: Jean-Marie Poiret
Cast: Jean Reno, Christian Clavier, Isabelle Reno, Valerie Lemercier, Jacques Francois, Mireille Ruffel, Marc De Jonge, Jacques Duckmin, etc.

“Operation Stew” is a twisted detective story of Jean-Marie Poiret, in the center of which the fearless Philippe Bouillet, the captain of French intelligence, is trying to stop the supply of weapons from France to an important person. But everything is not going as planned, because the consul secretary, put on a wiretap and connected with this person, suddenly breaks down on vacation. A woman intervenes in the case, who also turns out to be an intelligence officer, and all plans are crumbling.

The Aliens, 1993
Films with Jean Reno: The Aliens, 1993

Director: Jean-Marie Poiret
Cast: Jean Reno, Christian Clavier, Valerie Lemercier, Marie-Anne Chazelle, Christian Bugeau, Isabelle Nanti, Gerard Sety, Didier Pan, Jean-Paul Muel and others.

Count Godfroix de Monmirai due to the error of the sorcerer does not go to the past, in which he must correct his mistake, but to the distant future, where he meets his descendants. Entangled in the corridors of time, the count and his servant Zhakuy try to return back, simultaneously falling into a mass of ridiculous situations.

“Aliens” have long become classics of the French eccentric comedy of the nineties and one of the business cards of both Jean Reno and Christian Clavier. Later, sequels were filmed, which, however, could not be compared with the first film, so they did not have much success.

Leon, 1994
Films with Jean Reno: Leon, 1994

Director: Luke Besson
Cast: Jean Reno, Gary Oldman, Natalie Portman, Danny Aiello, Michael Badalucco, Ellen Green, Peter Eppel, Willie One Blood, Don Creek, etc.

Leon, a cleaner or simply a killer, became one of the few “bad guys” in the world cinema, to whom the viewer was imbued with sincere sympathy and even love. The tape of Luc Bessonne, in which, along with Renault, the first major role was played by the twelve-year-old Natalie Portman, became one of the best for both the actor and the director.

“Leon” claimed seven “Cesars”, but did not receive a single prize.

Jaguar, 1996
Films with Jean Reno: The Jaguar, 1996

Director: Francis Weber
Cast: Jean Reno, Patrick Bruel, Harrison Lowe, Patricia Velazquez, Danny Trejo, Roland Blanche, Francois Perrault and others.
