Unfortunate news to report on Glenio Bonder, the director of “Belle du Seigneur”. From Delux Productions:

Death of the director Glenio Bonder

After a long and painful illness Glenio Bonder died today November 10th 2011, at the age of 55 years. Delux Productions and the entire team who worked with Glenio are appalled by this sad event.

    I’m very sad to hear the news.
    I saw him in Italy, last year, when he was filming Belle du Seigneur, and he seemed such a sweet and lovely man.
    Sad to think also how hard he worked to realize this film. I hope he succeeded in seeing it finished.
