Personal Quote:

The most beautiful scene I have ever directed in my career is the last scene of Forest of the Hanged (1965). We see a young peasant woman preparing the last meal for the man she loves who is sentenced to death by hanging-a man, a woman, bread, salt and wine, love, life and death.


The first complete U.S. retrospective of his work was organized by the Film Society Lincoln Center, New York City [Nov.30-Dec.6 2011]. See more »
