Bruno Finck met Jean-Claude Brialy in 1979 at the Cannes film festival. Between the two men, love at first sight is instantaneous. “From that day on, we never left each other, until the evening of his death. He was my king, I was his prince“, even told Bruno Finck to Gala. But it was not until 2000 that Jean-Claude Brialy revealed the existence of the one who shared his life in his autobiography entitled “Le Ruisseau des Singes”. Their love story lasted until the death of the French filmmaker in 2007.
A love story and a professional collaboration
