Arthouse filmmaker Alain Resnais, a New Wave icon turned grand old man of French cinema, has died in Paris aged 91 .With a shock of wiry white hair and trademark dark shades, Resnais was a much-loved figure in the French film world and a regular presence at top festivals from Cannes to Berlin.Born on June 3, 1922 in the western city of Vannes, Resnais made a short film on the storybook villain "Fantomas" at the tender age of 13 .Resnais joined in the militancy of the 1960s, contributing to the collective films "Loin du Vietnam" and "L'An 01 ".From the 1970s onward, Resnais' films became lighter and more accessible, and his 1998 quasi-musical "On Connait la Chanson" (The Same Old Song) was a box office hit with 2.7 million entries in France alone.Resnais remained one of the most experimental French filmmakers, playing with chronology and perspectives and dipping in and out of parallel worlds.
