Jacques Servier was born on October 9, 1921 in Paris, France. His parents were both doctors, and his father was also a professor at the University of Paris. Jacques was the youngest of three children. He was educated at the Lycee Janson de Sailly and the Sorbonne, where he studied medicine.

Jacques Servier began his career as a doctor in the French army during World War II. He then worked as a general practitioner in Paris. In 1954, he founded the pharmaceutical company Laboratoires Servier. The company grew rapidly, and by the early 1960s, it was the largest privately-owned pharmaceutical company in France.

Jacques Servier was a very successful businessman, and his company became one of the world’s leading producers of generic drugs. He was also a generous philanthropist, and he established the Fondation Servier, a foundation that supports medical research.

Jacques Servier died on April 2, 2014 at the age of 92.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on Marion Cotillard] For me she's almost like an actress of the silent cinema, like Louise Brooks. And she's also fearless, she throws herself into scenes - literally.
2[on Dheepan (2015)] What interested me was the position of someone different in society. How the people who sell us roses when we're sitting in a cafe live and where they come from. If it helps their situation, then so much the better.[2015]
3You need something to say about the place where you make films. I know Europe. The US I don't know so well. I need a film that sees something, like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) did for Milos Forman. It makes it worth the trip.[2012]
4I really believe the form of the film must be in the scenario; cinema is not just added value to the scripting. I believe in it as a totality. There was a specific problem with this film, which we saw often during the writing: the clash between realism and stylisation. You had constantly to be looking for an equilibrium. If it's too realistic, it's boring. If it's too stylised, you don't believe it.[2012]
5A Prophet (2009) is maybe the point at which I began to feel uncomfortable with the French casting system. I felt like I needed to direct other faces, other skin colors, other ways of speaking and thinking, other forms of expression from what we are used to seeing.[2015]
