Who is Francis Veber?

Francis Paul Veber is a French film director, screenwriter and producer, and theater playwright. Many of his French comedies feature recurring types of characters, named François Pignon and François Perrin. Several of them have been remade as Hollywood products with his participation, or adapted. Some of his screenplays started as theater plays. This theatrical experience contributes to his films' tight structure, making them "marvels of economy".

Veber was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Hauts-de-Seine, the son of a writer mother and Pierre-Gilles Veber, a screenwriter. Veber's father was Jewish and his mother was Armenian-Russian. His grand-uncle was writer Tristan Bernard.
