Bertrand Bonello

“Mythology was the result of a polytheist society, today the oracle of my film who tells people their future clashes with Church dogma.”

Éric Rohmer

“I do not say, I show. I show people who move and speak.”

Whit Stillman

“For me, the present is a golden era that’s ending too. That’s the greatest golden era. Right now. [Laughs.] I just like pining for lost times. I can pine for this morning.”

Aleksandr Sokurov

“The surface of the screen and that of the canvas are one and the same.”

Maurice Pialat

“What I try to do, with the actors' consent, is to create something by beginning with a set situation that we can deviate from in the course of the shoot. ”

Alain Robbe-Grillet

“A new form will always seem more or less an absence of any form at all, since it is unconsciously judged by reference to the consecrated forms.”

Nicolas Roeg

“You make the movie through the cinematography - it sounds quite a simple idea, but it was like a huge revelation to me.”

Owen Land

“I think I applied a painterly way of thinking to film at the time. Let me explain what I mean. In painting you start with a blank canvas, you start with nothing and you create your image, particle by particle; whereas in film, usually, you just open your lens and you have a vast quantity of objects which become parts of your image. They are opposite processes. Being a painter, I wanted to create an image, to really make a film.”

Michelangelo Antonioni

“Hollywood is like being nowhere and talking to nobody about nothing.”

Larry Jordan

“I make films in the surrealist manner forcing inspiration as often as possible. When I am not inspired, I do not make films. I have always wanted to show the 'impossible' in my films, and to astonish the viewer, rather than entertain or tell the truth. ”

Lars von Trier

“I think it's important that we all try to give something to this medium, instead of just thinking about what is the most efficient way of telling a story or making an audience stay in a cinema.”

Isild Le Besco

“My first step writing, was the idea of going to the snow and having sex with a girl. It changed later to the sea. But that was the most important thing, the loneliness of being young and alone.”

Elia Suleiman

“The relationship between the moment of truth that you capture and the moment of truth that the spectator captures is incredible. This is what I consider the godliness of communication.”
