PARIS, April 5 (UPI) -- French filmmaker Claude Miller has died in Paris after several months of illness, his representatives said. He was 70.

Radio France Internationale confirmed his Wednesday night death, but did not report an exact cause of it.

Miller worked with New Wave film pioneers Jean-Luc Godard and Robert Bresson before going on to direct his own movies "La meilleure facon de marcher," "Garde a vue," "Mortelle randonnee," "L'accompagnatrice," "La Classe de neige," "La Petite voleuse" and "Un secret."

Organizers of France's Cannes film festival declared via Twitter that Thursday would be "a day of sadness" in honor of Miller.
