Alexandre Astruc (French: [astʁyk]; 13 July 1923 – 19 May 2016) was a French film critic and film director.[1]


Before becoming a film director he was a journalist, novelist and film critic.[2] His contribution to the auteur theory centers on his notion of the caméra-stylo or "camera-pen" and the idea that directors should wield their cameras like writers use their pens.[3][4]

In 1994 he was awarded the René Clair Award for his whole body of film work.
