"The actress Chantal Goya was interviewed about her experience on the movie. She remembers the first day: ‘Jean-Pierre Leaud, whom I didn’t know from Adam, or Eve, came over to me and, looking me straight in the eye, asked me point blank, "Will you marry me?" I told him, "We’ll see later. I’m in a hurry. Bye." I went home at noon.’ I’ll have to see the film again to be sure, but I have the strangest feeling that moment is in the movie." — Roger Ebert (x)
“I never had any special appetite for filmmaking, but you have to make a living and it is miraculous to earn a living working in film. Luck, I never looked to make difficult movies on purpose. You make the films you can make and every film I’ve made has been an assignment.”
June 3, 1922 - March 1, 2014

”If filming means you have to control everything I’d shoot myself. You already have to control the framing, the colors, the costumes, the sets and all that. But that’s done before, the control’s done before. What I like during filming is that these are moments when you have the right not to reply and to let things happen. Before the shoot, after the shoot, you have to account for everything.”
