Died on Friday June 17, 2022, Jean-Louis Trintignant was buried in Nîmes, unlike his late daughter Marie, whose tomb is in Paris. Journalist Laurent Del Bono explained why on Thursday June 30, 2022 in Femme Actuelle.
A true legend of French cinema, Jean-Louis Trintignant is dead at the age of 91 on Friday, June 17, 2022. Shortly after his death was announced, the late actor received a shower of posthumous tributes from many celebrities and anonymous people. The comedian “died peacefully, of old age, this morning, at his home, in the Gard, surrounded by his loved ones“, as clarified by theAFP. It is in this same department that the funeral of Jean-Louis Trintignant took place a few days later. From now on the actor’s body rests in a tomb located in the Pont de Justice cemetery in Nîmes.
For the record, Jean-Louis Trintignant had experienced a terrible tragedy in 2003. That year, his daughter, Marie Trintignant, died under the blows of his companion Bertrand Cantat. A tragedy that greatly affected the actor thereafter, just like the mother of the late actress, Nadine Trintignant. At the time, the funeral of Marie Trintignant took place in the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris, where you can still pray at his grave.
