I liked Truffaut a lot, I've felt a lot of admiration for his way to address the audience, and his storytelling.... La nuit américaine is adorable, and another film I like to see is L'enfant sauvage , with its fine humanism.
On the works of filmmaker Francois TruffautVariant translation: I liked Truffaut enormously, I admired him. His way of relating with an audience, of telling a story, is both fascinating and tremendously appealing. It's not my style of storytelling, but it works wonderfully well in relation to the film medium.
I write scripts to serve as skeletons awaiting the flesh and sinew of images.Ingmar Bergman
I don't want to produce a work of art that the public can sit and suck aesthetically…. I want to give them a blow in the small of the back, to scorch their indifference, to startle them out of their complacency.Ingmar Bergman
Self -portraiture is something one should never get involved in, since it is wrong to lie even though one endeavours to tell the truth .Ingmar Bergman
I want very much to tell, to talk about, the wholeness inside every human being. It's a strange thing that every human being has a sort of dignity or wholeness in him, and out of that develops relationships to other human beings, tensions, misunderstandings, tenderness, coming in contact, touching and being touched, the cutting off of a contact and what happens then.Ingmar Bergman
I'm planning, you see, to try to confine myself to the truth. That's hard for an old, inveterate fantasy martyr and [illegible] liar who has never hesitated to give truth the form he felt the occasion demanded.Ingmar Bergman
I hope I never get so old I get religious.Ingmar Bergman
I don't watch my own films very often. I become so jittery and ready to cry... and miserable. I think it's awful.Ingmar Bergman
When I was young, I was extremely scared of dying, but now I think it a very, very wise arrangement. It’s like a light that is extinguished. Not very much to make a fuss about.Ingmar Bergman
This damned ranting about doom. Is that food for the minds of modern people? Do they really expect us to take them seriously?Ingmar Bergman
Our social relationships are limited, most of the time, to gossip and criticizing people's behavior. This observation slowly pushed me to isolate from the so-called social life. My days pass by in solitude.Ingmar Bergman
You find him disgusting with his thick mouth and ugly body and wet appealing eyes. You think he's disgusting and you're afraid.Ingmar Bergman
The demons are innumerable, arrive at the most inappropriate times and create panic and terror... but I have learned that if I can master the negative forces and harness them to my chariot, then they can work to my advantage.... Lilies often grow out of carcasses' arseholes.Ingmar Bergman
