  Appaz: Some of these games must be misplaced. Judging from the pictures on she probably did not play chess in 1968.
Mar-10-07  Georgie Dubb: She?
Mar-10-07  Resignation Trap: <Appaz> This is the Canadian player, Camille Coudari, who earned <his> IM title in 1979.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Appaz: <Resignation Trap> Oh...thanks for the correction, I should have guessed. I was probably a bit captivated by the nice pictures.
Mar-10-07  monopole2313: Is "The Great Chess Movie" available on DVD?
Mar-19-10  jul059: There is 237 games available on the official chess federation of Quebec. Is anyone willing to add some to chessgames?

Dec-03-11  lentil: The "ille" ending on the name is definitely feminine; I am not surprised at the misinterpretation.
Feb-23-12  SimonWebbsTiger: Interesting article by Coudari about Fischer on chessbase and links to the Great Chess Movie
Mar-03-12  ozmikey: <SimonWebbsTiger> Interesting article, and the first time I've seen that "Great Chess Movie".

Although it's a very interesting period piece in its way, the method of the filmmakers is infuriating (and, dare I say, typical of the Francophone style of making documentaries). "Right, we're making a film about chess, and we have interview footage with all these top grandmasters, who could give us all manner of insights into the professional game, its history, its challenges, etc. Hang on, I know, let's relegate them all to tiny cameos and instead fill up the film with endless snippets of an interview with a self-obsessed filmmaker poser who knows next to nothing about chess and speaks nothing but pretentious, banal platitudes...making his moronic questions at a world championship press conference the climax of the film. Wonderful!"

  PhilFeeley: <SimonWebbsTiger> I missed all this when it first came out in 2012. I don't know what made me try to find out where Camille Coudari is today, but I'm glad I did. I will certainly look at the movie - and Frank Brady's book.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

  perfidious: <Appaz: Some of these games must be misplaced. Judging from the pictures on she probably did not play chess in 1968.>

Probably not, but Coudari and his father Yves did-met both at the board, in different countries.

Besides Coudari-the only person whom I have met with the forename Camille, though the only person I have heard of with that name who was male-I have played Jean-Marie Matisson, who is certainly male.

Oct-17-13  boz: Achille is also male.
