Béla Balázs

Screenwriter

“Every art deals with human beings, it is a human manifestation and presents human beings. To phrase Marx: ‘The root of all art is man.’ When the film close-up strips the veil of our imperceptiveness and insensitivity from the hidden little things and shows us the face of objects, it still shows us man, for what makes objects expressive are the human expressions projected on to them.”
