Convicted killer to appear in Montreal stage production

Singer for Noir Désir served four years for killing girlfriend in 2003


Bertrand Cantat, the former singer of French rock band Noir Désir who spent four years in prison for the 2003 killing of his girlfriend, actress Marie Trintignant, is set to appear in a Montreal stage production opening in May 2012. Cantat has been commissioned to write the music and perform in a Greek tragedy by Wajdi Mouawad for the prestigious Théâtre du nouveau monde. Cantat was released from prison in 2007 after serving half the eight-year sentence he received for beating Trintignant to death.

  1. Well why not. He did the deed, served his time, was released early for whatever, and is now going to become rich and famous.
    Another heart warming story from canada, and we have sooo many.
    I hope he movies to LA, becomes a star, gets an Oscar and writes a book.
    Better yet I think I will move to China, If they will have me. I wonder how long it will take me to learn Chinese. Wish me luck.
