Bruno Nuytten (born 28 August 1945) is a French cinematographer turned director.

Camille Claudel which was Nuytten's first directorial and screenwriting effort, won the César Award for Best film in 1989. The film starred and was co-produced by Isabelle Adjani, with whom he had a son, Barnabé Saïd-Nuytten. Adjani won the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the 39th Berlin International Film Festival for her role in the film.[1]

His sophomore directorial effort, Albert Souffre, though also a heavily emotional movie, was set in contemporary times.[2]

His 2000 film, Passionnément, starred Charlotte Gainsbourg.

His films as cinematographer include Les Valseuses, Barocco, La meilleure façon de marcher, The Bronte Sisters, Brubaker, Garde à vue, Possession, Fort Saganne, So Long, Stooge (Tchao Pantin), Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources (US title: Manon of the Spring). He won the César Award for Best Cinematography in 1977 and 1984, and was nominated in 1980, 1982, 1985 and 1987.

He is currently a professor at France's national film school La Fémis.
