Florent-Emilio Siri (born 2 March 1965) is a French film director and screenwriter born in Lorraine. Siri studied cinema at the Sorbonne University and ESRA in Paris. Florent Siri is also a noted music video director, particularly in his home country of France. He has worked with such bands as IAM, Alliance Ethnik, and Wu-Tang Clan, among others.

Early life & career

Siri began his feature film career with the 1998 social film Une minute de silence (one minute of silence) and continued in 2002 with the action film Nid de guêpes (The Nest). He then went on to serve as director of two critically acclaimed and highly successful Splinter Cell games at French-based video game developer Ubisoft, titled Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.

Following the underground success of his first feature film, Siri's directorial style caught the eye of actor Bruce Willis, who asked Siri to direct his big-budget 2005 action thriller Hostage. While not a big commercial success, the film earned considerable critical praise of Siri's slick direction, calling it "an art house version of the Die Hard films."[1]

In 2007, he released a film called L'Ennemi intime (Intimate Enemies) treating on the personal aspect and psychological effects on individual personalities of the Algerian War. It was the first film depicting the use of napalm by the French Army during the 1954-1962 conflict.

He wrote with Julien Rappeneau and made a film biopic titled My Way (Cloclo) about the French pop singer, songwriter and dancer Claude François portrayed by Jérémie Renier. It was released in France in March 2012. In November 2012 he was named a Chevalier in the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

In 2015, he directed the comedy film French Cuisine. In 2016, he directed four episodes of the Netflix's TV series Marseille. He is also credited as showrunner.
