The director's list

« Here is a list of 50 films I come back to in my mind, and when working on my own films, as if they were part of my own experience, and family memories.  Over time, scenes in these films feel as close to me as if I had lived them personally.  They make up my creative imagination much like old photograph albums do. I also keep DVD copies of most of them closely available, for easy access, and inspiration. »

The director on To Our loves

I always come back to it every time I direct a movie. It is an obssession. Because it is so lively but also extremely constructed at the same time.

Close
The director on The Soft Skin

What strikes me most is how the film is linked to the interest of Truffaut for Hitchcock.

Close
The director on A Bigger Splash

The camera captures sex, eroticism, youth. There is a magnificent obsession for the human form which is also that of Hockney as a painter.

Close
The director on Balthazar

Bresson talks about everything that is both beautiful and limited in youth: time, childhood...

Close
The director on Portrait of Jason

It is a very moving film for its beauty and its violence.

Close
The director on The Fallen Idol

The film constitutes a perfect metaphor of what a child understands of adulthood.
