“[Cinema] is the celebration of the Lumière Brothers. Since the Lumière period, what has come out of it? If you exclude that minimum of "self-fright” sought at all costs at the sight of that train. The Lumières… I think their commemoration goes on since 19th century. The same one which has been perpetuated since then.”
