Personal Quote:

Cinema should capture life in the forms in which it exists and use images of life itself. It is the most realistic art form in terms of form. The form in which the cinematic shot exists should be a reflection of the forms of real life. The director has only to choose the moments he will capture and to construct a whole out of them.

At the Cannes film festival, he won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury three times (more than any other director) with Offret (1986), Nostalghia (1983) and Stalker (1979). See more »
