Gilles Bourdos (b. 1963 in Nice, France) is a French film director, screenwriter and producer. He is best known for his atmospheric thrillers, which use troubling themes in contrast with powerful aesthetic imagery. He was one of the founders of the French production company Persona Films which produced most of his early work.
He made his feature film debut at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival with Disparus (1998), a political thriller and love triangle during the Surrealist movement in Paris in 1938. His second critically acclaimed feature, Inquietudes (2003), is based on the Ruth Rendell novel A Sight for Sore Eyes and stars Gregoire Colin and Julie Ordon. His most recent work and first English language film, Afterwards (2008), features Evangeline Lilly, John Malkovich, and Romain Duris, and is based on the French bestseller Et Après... by Guillaume Musso.
