If you see with innocent eyes, everything is divine.
My relationship with my body has changed. I used to consider it as a servant who should obey, function, give pleasure. In sickness, you realise that you are not the boss. It is the other way around.
A different language is a different vision of life.
Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second, and you can hop from one place to another. It's a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.
There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the passion of life.
It's easier to be faithful to a restaurant than it is to a woman.
Realism is a bad word. In a sense everything is realistic. I see no line between the imaginary and the real.
I am not the kind of director who sits in a chair smoking a cigar talking with a microphone to 10 assistants. I need to move. To touch. To put a painting on a wall. To arrange a set.
It is only when I am doing my work that I feel truly alive.
When I start a picture, I always have a script, but I change it every day. I put in what occurs to me that day out of my imagination. You start on a voyage; you know where you will end up but not what will occur along the way. You want to be surprised.
