“My movie is born first in my head, dies on paper; is resuscitated by the living persons and real objects I use, which are killed on film but, placed in a certain order and projected onto a screen, come to life again like flowers in water.”

― Robert Bresson, French, Director, Film, Cinematographer, Cinema (Notes on the Cinematographer)


Jean-Luc Godard, wrote

“Robert Bresson is French cinema, as Dostoevsky is the Russian novel and Mozart is German music.”
