Personal Quote:

[on film schools] Oh, technique, schools. A film-maker's school is to go to the movies three times a day for ten years. Only those who went through such a school have a true love of cinema; for those who work their way up as assistants, cinema is only a bread-winner.

Trivia:

He directed 5 different actors in César-nominated performances: Nicole Garcia, Stéphane Freiss, Daniel Auteuil, Marie Gillain and Vincent Perez. Garcia and Freiss won Césars for their performances in one of de Broca movies. See more »
