Christian Carion was born in a family of farmers in the North of France. In 2001, Christian Carion directed his first feature film: The girl from Paris. The story, an hommage to his upbringing, tells the meeting of a brooding farmer, Michel Serrault, and a Parisian girl seeking the calm of the countryside. The movie was a hit, seducing over 2.4 million french moviegoers. The success allowed Carion to move on to a more ambitious project, Merry Christmas, a movie he had had in mind since 1993. Screened in Cannes for the film festival in 2005, this historic movie depicts the fraternization of warriors on the eve of Christmas during World War I. The movie, a huge public success, was nominated numerous times in the French Cesar and was nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. Then his films (Farewell, Come What May, My Son, etc.) were nominated in different film festivals several times.
