Swiss-French critic, film editor, author and director. After studying film editing in Paris, he turned to film journalism as an editor for the magazine "Cine-Digest." In 1947 he edited a critical anthology and in 1950, began his direct involvement with film, editing or directing short subjects. From 1955-1961, he was a close collaborator of Alain Resnais, editing several important films as well as working with Chaplin's controversial, "A King in New York." In 1961 Colpi directed his first full-length feature film and it won the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
