Personal Quote:

I never really think where I put the camera. It comes naturally to me. I don't analyze and I don't contrive. If you haven't got your own compass within yourself which clearly points you in a certain direction then you won't find it. And it doesn't depend on any film school or anything you might learn in a film school. See more »

Was a member of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival in 1989. See more »
