Paris - AFP

Veteran French actor Jean-Louis Trintignant, the star of Oscar-winning film \"Amour\" who rose to fame opposite Brigitte Bardot in \"And God Created Woman,\" is bowing out of a critically-acclaimed career. The 82-year-old, whose life took a tragic turn in 2003 when his actress daughter Marie died after a fight with her rocker boyfriend, made the announcement in an interview published Monday in the daily Nice-Matin. In it, he said he would put an end to his career with a poetry recital next week in the southeastern city of Antibes, even though he felt \"even more pleasure acting now than at 30.\" \"But I\'m very old and I have trouble moving around. So after these two last performances, I will do nothing more. No more theatre, no more cinema. Make room for the young,\" he said. Trintignant is perhaps best known abroad for his most recent -- and last -- film role in \"Amour,\" in which he plays an elderly man whose love for his wife is seriously tested when he has to care for her after a stroke. It won the top Palme d\'Or prize at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, followed by an Oscar for best foreign language film. When director Michael Haneke asked him to act in \"Amour,\" Trintignant says he jumped at the opportunity. It was his first big-screen movie since 2003, when he played in the comedy \"Janis et John\" with his daughter, just months before she died. Marie Trintignant died of brain damage while on a trip to Lithuania following a hotel-room fight with her boyfriend Bertrand Cantat, lead singer of the famous French band Noir Desir. Her death sent shockwaves through France, and in a particularly poignant moment, her father was seen breaking down in sobs at her funeral in Paris. Cantat was jailed for eight years, and was freed on parole in 2007, returning to France.
