Jean-Paul Rappeneau (born 8 April 1932) is a French film director and screenwriter.

He started out in film as an assistant and screenwriter collaborating with Louis Malle on Zazie dans le metro in 1960 and Vie privee in 1961. In 1964, he was co-screenwriter for L' Homme de Rio, which starred Jean-Paul Belmondo.

The first film that he both wrote and directed was A Matter of Resistance in 1965. Although it was a great critical and popular success, he did not make another film until 1971, when he directed Les Mariés de l'an II, again starring Belmondo and Marlène Jobert.

Since 1975, Rappeneau has written only for his own films, including Le Sauvage, starring Yves Montand and Tout feu, tout flamme (1981), again with Montand, who co-starred with Isabelle Adjani.

In 1990, Rappeneau directed a deluxe Technicolor film version
