[At the 1958 Oscars] I find people with the worst English talk more than the others.
Interviewed in "World Directors in Dialogue" by Bert Cardullo (Scarecrow Press, 2011).
Often leaves hints about the theme of his next feature film. For example, the ending of Mon Oncle
(1958) paves the way for the technology-minded Playtime
(1967), and the balletic representation of cars in Playtime
(1967) leads to Trafic
(1971). By those standards, the film that would have followed Trafic
(1971) would be about space travel or subways.
