Named by Newsweek one of seven people who will “shape the future,” Kassovitz received his greatest critical acclaim as the writer and director of the French drama Hate (La Haine). The film won the Best Director award at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival as well as César Awards for Best Screenplay and Best Editing.

After making three short films for Canal Plus, Kassovitz wrote, directed and starred in his first feature, the interracial romantic comedy Café Au Lait. He followed that film with Hate and the provocative Assassin(S), in which he starred opposite Michel Serrault. In 2000, he directed the dark thriller Crimson Rivers, starring Jean Reno and Vincent Cassel.
As an actor, Kassovitz is best known for his lead role opposite Audrey Tautou in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s international sensation Amélie. Among his many other leading roles, he starred alongside Eric Bana, Daniel Craig and Geoffrey Rush in Munich, Steven Spielberg’s drama based on real events.
