Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Olivier Assayas (born January 25, 1955) is a French film director and screenwriter.

He made his debut in 1986, after directing some short-films and writing for influential film magazine Cahiers du cinéma.

Assayas's father was French director/screenwriter Jacques Remy (1910-1981). He started his career in the industry by helping him. He ghostwrote episodes for TV shows his father was working on when his health failed.

His biggest hit to date has been Irma Vep, starring Hong Kong star Maggie Cheung, that manages to be both a tribute to French director Louis Feuillade and to Hong Kong cinema.

While working at Cahiers du cinéma, Assayas wrote lovingly about European film directors he admires but also about Asian directors. One of his latest films is a documentary about Taiwanese filmmaker Hou Hsiao-Hsien.

He married Hong Kong movie actress Maggie Cheung, (also Miss Hong Kong in 1983), in 1998. They divorced in 2001.
