Marie Trintignant Buried After Star-Studded Tribute

An array of French stars turned out to pay tribute to French actress MARIE TRINTIGNANT at her funeral today (06AUG03).

Trintignant - who died last week (ends01AUG03) aged 41, after sustaining severe head injuries in a shocking domestic drama - was buried at Paris's PERE LACHAISE cemetery, the resting place of Irish writer OSCAR WILDE and American rocker JIM MORRISON.

Her internment followed a tribute ceremony attended by her family and friends including screen legend CATHERINE DENEUVE.

Former Prime Minister LIONEL JOSPIN, British actress JANE BIRKIN and director CLAUDE LELOUCH were among celebrities who gathered at the EDOUARD VII theatre, where they sang songs in memory of the daughter of movie star JEAN-LOUIS TRINTIGNANT.

The actress slipped into an irreversible coma on 27 July (03) after an incident at her hotel in Lithuania, where she was shooting a film about the French writer COLETTE.

She died on Friday after being flown to France. An autopsy showed her death was caused by repeated blows to the head.

Her boyfriend, singer BERTRAND CANTAT of the top French rock bank NOIR DESIR, is being held in jail by Lithuanian authorities pending an investigation.
