Personal Quote:

The director must consider himself surrounded by enemies; what I mean is that, in a business where the taste of one man must prevail, he is surrounded by people who want to do nothing but improve their own tastes.


His ideological viewpoints underwent a somewhat dramatic turnaround: from strident socialist and atheist in his youth, to becoming an outspoken member of France's far-right National Front Party in his later years. See more »
