Claude Lelouch

Director

“I see a film as a puzzle, with a beginning, middle, and end, but I like to start at the end sometimes. I start with sequences that stimulate the viewer’s intelligence and emotions. You have to strike hard from the beginning and create a depressurizing zone between the viewer’s own life and the one onscreen.”
