BIOGRAPHY

Began his career as a newsreel cameraman and went on to shoot several French classics of the 1930s, including Renoir's "Grand Illusion" (1937). Matras was responsible for the critically celebrated, virtuosic camera movements of Max Ophuls' "La Ronde" (1950), "Le Plaisir" (1951), and "Madame de..." (1953) and added sumptuous color to his gliding camerawork on Ophuls' "Lola Montes" (1955). He also directed two short films, "De Babord a Tribord" (1926) and "Cent sous en balade" (1931).
