“As an audience member, it makes me feel good to see something that helps me to grow.”
A graduate of the Paris National Conservatory, Antoine Reinartz graced European theater stages (Sweden, Italy…) for two years. He returned to France to perform alongside Romane Bohringer in David Greig’s play The Events, directed by Ramin Gray. In 2017, he took on the film role of Thibault, the activist and controversial Act-Up president during the worst years of the AIDS epidemic in Robin Campillo’s BPM, presented in competition at the Cannes Film Festival. His nuanced performance earned him the César Award for Best Supporting Actor. Two years later, he returned to the Croisette with Arnaud Desplechin’s Oh Mercy! This time he played Louis, a wavering new police lieutenant facing a sordid and chaotic reality. In 2019, the actor has also starred in Nicolas Pariser’s Alice and the Mayor, Grand Corps Malade and Mehdi Idir’s School Life and Lucie Borleteau’s Perfect Nanny, in which he played an overworked father and Leïla Bekhti’s husband in this adaptation of Leïla Slimani’s novel. He will next appear in Laurent Cantet’s film Arthur Rambo and Samuel Theïs’ Petite Nature. Before returning to stage, he is currently shooting Nona et ses filles for Arte, the first series directed by Valérie Donzelli.
