Florent Emilio Siri is a director of the Splinter Cell and Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow video games.

BackgroundEdit

Florent Siri is a French movie director born in Lorraine. He studied cinema at the Sorbonne University and ESRA in Paris. He began his feature film career with the 1998 social film Une minute de silence (One minute of silence), and continued in 2002 with the action film Nid de guêpes (The Nest), and then went on to serve as director of two critically-acclaimed and highly successful Splinter Cell games at French-based video game developer Ubisoft, titled Splinter Cell and Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow.

Following the underground success of his first feature film, Siri's directorial style caught the eye of actor Bruce Willis, who asked Siri to direct his big-budget 2005 action thriller Hostage. While not a big commercial success, the film earned considerable critical praise of Siri's slick direction, calling it "an art house version of the Die Hard films."

In 2007, he released a film called L'Ennemi intime (Intimate Enemies) treating on the personal aspect and psychological effects on individual personalities of the Algerian War. It was the first movie depicting the use of napalm by the French Army during the 1954-1962 conflict.

Florent Siri is also a noted music video director, particularly in his home country of France. He has worked with such bands as IAM, Expression Direkt, Alliance Ethnik, and the Wu-Tang Clan, among others.
