Personal Quote:

[on François Truffaut] For him, film was a matter of life and death. He used to say, "In films, trains never run late" - I love that. Film was his salvation because in film everything has a meaning. Life is chaotic but in cinema you can stop time. François used to say, "Those who love life, love cinema." That's for sure. See more »
