Serious fractures, especially in the pelvis and ankles, for French director and actor Mathieu Kassovitz, victim of a serious motorcycle accident yesterday while taking part in a driving training course at the Linas-Monthléry racetrack, south of Paris . The actor, who revealed himself to the general public in 1995 with the film “Hate”, is 56 years old and is now hospitalized in the Parisian hospital of the Kremlin-Bicetre where the doctors have put him into an artificial induced coma, but he is not life threatening. According to what has been learned, Kassovitz lost control of his bike and went off the road after a curve, ending up on a protective barrier. The impact then threw him off the track, where he fell violently to the ground. The plaintiff was alone when he ran off the road, according to the investigations of the investigators, who also questioned the driving instructor. After the impact with the ground, Kassovitz remained conscious and was able to immediately take off his helmet by himself. “Hate”, the film that made him famous when he was still very young, saw him directing and starring in a story about the desperation of the banlieues and police violence. He won 3 Césars, the French Oscars, and the best director award at Cannes. His later films include Jacques Audiard’s “Un héros très discret”, Luc Besson’s “The Fifth Element”, “The Fabulous World of Amélie” and Costa-Gavras’ “Amen”. This week, the latest film in which he starred will be released on French screens, “Visions” by Yann Gozlan, in which he appears alongside Diane Kruger.
