“I have lived most of my life in Paris, but I have a connection with Rome that I have with no other place. I’m attached by invisible strings.”
“I’ve learned one general thing in filmmaking: to work with one strong idea. One strong concept that pushes you to work in a certain way artistically.”
“When you do movies on low budgets, you don’t want to have a location that requires a very big light right outside the window when you’re 10 stories up. You have to find a location where you have a terrace outside, or you can light from a second floor, or you can light through the windows for daylight.”
“Believe me, I don’t like being photographed. I don’t like myself in pictures. Actually, I do sometimes.”
