Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Former student at L'IDHEC (La FEMIS). He had to leave after only 1 year because of aesthetic disagreements with his teachers, who didn't support his interest in shooting sequences in one long take. Ironically, he later became famous for exactly this style of filmmaking. See more »
