The circumstances of the death of Marie Trintignant
M6 broadcast a documentary on November 24, 2019, concerning the death of the young actress. In this report, they broadcast certain images of the interrogation of his companion, Bertrand Cantat. This report is part of the International Day for the Elimination of violence against women, November 25. The images shown return to the circumstances of the death of the actress on August 1, 2003. Despite the fact that Bertrand Cantat pleads the accident, the story is terrible. According to him, it was just an argument that led to a fight.
On August 1, 2003, Marie Trintignant succumbed to cerebral edema caused by the blows of her husband, Bertrand Cantat. Only a few days before her death, the actress sent a disturbing text message to his mother, Nadine Trintignant. One evening in July 2003, the lives of Jean-Louis and Nadine Trintignant were turned upside down. That day, the director was in Lithuania where his daughter Marie Trintignant was shooting the TV movie Colette, A Free Woman. He then learns that his daughter has been taken to the hospital. And a few days later, the actress, on whom there are “twenty traces of blows”, dies following cerebral edema. A tragedy from which Nadine Trintignant never recovered, as she explains in the documentary entitled: Marie Trintignant, your broken dreams.
The actress had changed under the influence of her husband
Particularly close to her daughter, she says she didn’t “understand anything” about what she was going through. Even if she was perfectly aware that her daughter’s relationship with Bertrand Cantat was deteriorating. “I had noticed that she was getting sadder and sadder. She was changing under the influence of this man,” exclaims his mother. However, there remained “inconceivable that there is a serious problem”.
His mother therefore did not see too worrying a change in view of this relationship. Unfortunately, when she noticed it, it was already far too late. His daughter died on August 1, 2003 following the blows inflicted by his companion.
