His first film role was in Tout peut arriver in 1969. He then appeared in Éric Rohmer's Le Genou de Claire in 1970 playing a small role as an adolescent. He went on to appear in Rohmer's Perceval le Gallois and Les Nuits de la pleine lune, and also in films directed by Nagisa Oshima, Pierre Zucca, Claude Lelouch, Cedric Klapisch and Édouard Molinaro. In 1990 he appeared in Christian Vincent's La Discrète.
