Some suggestions for you :

My father wanted me to be a pharmacist like himself. He had been a doctor, but he no longer believed in medicine; so he became a pharmacist, but he believed in that hardly more.

To observe a profoundly stupid individual can be very enriching, and that's why we should never feel contempt for them.

You have to accept the fact that sometimes you are the pigeon, and sometimes you are the statue.

I like making black and white films in natural surroundings, but I much prefer shooting a color film inside a studio where the colors are easier to control.

I wanted to make a film about stupid people that was very vulgar and deeply stupid. From that moment on I can hardly be reproached for making a film that is about stupid people.

I am a Communist, certainly, but that doesn't mean I have to make films about the wheat harvest.

There's one thing which I hate about color films... people who use up a lot of their despairing producer's money by working in the laboratory to bring out the dominant hues, or to make color films where there isn't any color.

I love mirrors. They let one pass through the surface of things.

I brought the film like a flower to the world.

First I went to the Sorbonne to do my licence en lettres, but I also started to study law.

It's often wrong to write for specific actors because one ends up using what is least interesting about them, their mannerisms and habits. I prefer not to write for specific people.

Laying tracks gives you freedom without being too obvious.

A woman is subject matter enough.

You make a film to distract people, to interest them, perhaps to make them think, perhaps to help them be a little less naive, a little better than they were.
