Pierre Viallet, the beloved husband of Marie Versini, died peacefully in the early hours of the morning of April 15, 2013
Pierre Viallet was a man of radio, film and television as a producer and a writer.
He made his debut as a director in 1953 with "The Invitation to the Castle" by Jean Anouilh starring Brigitte Bardot in the lead role.
Over 70 films ensured the opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in film literature (Eugene Ionesco, Jean Cocteau, Georges Simenon, Marguerite Duras, Francoise Sagan, Truman Capote) and cinema stars (Brigitte Bardot Curd Jürgens, Orson Welles). He worked from the 1950s to 1980s, but remains unknown to most the general public.
Both Pierre and Marie were of one heart and one soul for over 40 years. He proved again just a few weeks ago his great artistic talent as a director, and as a filmmaker and writer when he began working on a new project. He was forced to abandon it when he was taken ill. Today we say goodbye, but his work will remain in our memories.

The funeral took place with just the family.
Quote Pierre Viallet in his novel "Irish Coffee"
"It is not that death is easy or difficult. She did not even ask the question. Fear of death is much to regret itself. She no regrets."
Pierre directed and co-wrote the teleplays for the Euro-western TV series “The Indians” (1964)
