Quotable Quotes from Cannes Film Festival

Saturday, May 26, 2012 12:22:51 PM (IST) | Rajesh Kumar Singh, Bollywood Trade Editorial


“For me essence of cinema is a person and face speaking, a fantastic face saying fantastic words …that is movie making.”
David Cronenberg, Director COSMOPOLIS (Competition)
'I try to make a different kind of cinema, a different type of film. I do not want the director to be very visible. The music and editing are external elements and I did not want to over-use them. I don't think we need to tell the audience when they should feel moved or not. I am also sure that interpretations will be different in France and in Romania.'
Cristian Mungiu, Director BEYOND THE HILLS (Competition)
'I never write a movie to prove anything. When you reach a certain age, you are inevitably going to be affected by suffering. I don't want to show anything more than that, there is no more to it. And that's why I shot the film in an apartment. I did not want to go into a hospital room, which is something we have seen and reseen. There was therefore no reason to change anything. At the end of the day, I am very happy to have made a simple film.'
Michael Haneke, Director AMOUR (Competition)
'When I watch a film, I expect some kind of rebellion. That is what I love about Almodovar, who turns up in places you don't expect to find him and who doesn't hesitate to break the codes. I like the forms of rebellion where somebody kicks tradition in the teeth, about what we are supposed to do and not supposed to do. What I find exciting is when there are surprises and barriers are overcome.”
Jean-Paul Gaultier, International Competition Jury and Couturier of Almodovar films
'It’s a weird thing about films; it’s almost like alchemy. You’re playing around with all these ingredients and sometimes there’s this combination that finally comes together that’s the perfect one.'
John Hillcoat, Director LAWLESS (Competition)
'Refusing to give it up and bow down before dictatorship, that’s what cinema is all about.'
Yousry Nasrallah, Director AFTER THE BATTLE (Competition)
