Africa is no more this poor continent. It’s on the march.  (Claire Denis Quotes) Start with scout locations first  (Claire Denis Quotes) I don’t remember being afraid of anything in making films  (Claire Denis Quotes) I think a film noir demands a beginning and an end  (Claire Denis Quotes) Making pizza is a great job. All that kneading the dough - everything to do with cooking is wonderful, sensual.  (Claire Denis Quotes) Freedom is not having a big budget  (Claire Denis Quotes) Marguerite Duras was a very good friend of mine and an intellectual hero. She was also a sort of mother figure. Of course she was an influence.  (Claire Denis Quotes) I have very strong relationships with my actors when I’m shooting. When you love an actor’s work, you always feel you have to go further, and you make several films together. One film just gives you time to get acquainted.  (Claire Denis Quotes) What I don’t like so much is to give explanations about people’s behaviour... I’m not interested in making conclusions. I would never think about myself or anyone else, ‘Well, this happened, this happened, this happened, so this must be the result.’ It doesn’t work like that with me.  (Claire Denis Quotes) The cinema should be human and be part of people’s lives; it should focus on ordinary existences in sometimes extraordinary situations and places. That is what really motivates me.  (Claire Denis Quotes) I always scout locations first. The apartments, the railway tracks, the café, the canal - I figure out the geography of the film.  (Claire Denis Quotes) I really started watching films when I was 14. As I became a teenager, there was nothing that really interested me apart from music, books and films.  (Claire Denis Quotes) My mother’s father was from Brazil - a painter, and not a famous one - and was always broke. But he was a free spirit, a great grandfather.  (Claire Denis Quotes) Inside the family, you can go from hate to passivity to extreme love within the same hour  (Claire Denis Quotes) I hate family pressures and family responsibilities. I’m more comfortable as a stranger. I always imagined I could just live in a hotel. I’m afraid of family.  (Claire Denis Quotes) I long to make films. I’m dying to be inside the next film. I always hope there will be another film.  (Claire Denis Quotes) I suppose I am interested in the variety of human life - how people live. I am most interested in individuals and how they respond to challenges or to difficulties or just to each other. I am curious about people.  (Claire Denis Quotes) Filmmaking creates a sort of - trust, maybe. It has led me to a group of people I feel good with. We have something in common because of film, when otherwise we might have nothing.  (Claire Denis Quotes) Growing up outside your own country makes you feel that you don’t belong when you return, so you feel free to make friends with whomever you like.  (Claire Denis Quotes) Chocolat’ was a sort of statement of my own childhood, recognizing I experienced something from the end of the colonial era and the beginning of independence as I was a child that really made me aware of things I never forgot - a sort of childhood that made me different when I was a student in France.  (Claire Denis Quotes) The camera is not your eye, and it’s not the eye of the audience. I don’t think it’s my eye, either. It belongs to the film.  (Claire Denis Quotes) A career for me is something like building a bridge. You know, where to put the lifts. You have a plan. I have a blueprint for each film, but not for my life.  (Claire Denis Quotes) I was never very interested in my own experience, I think, in fact, if my films have a common link, maybe it’s being a foreigner - it’s common for people who are born abroad - they don’t know so well where they belong.  (Claire Denis Quotes) I’ve experienced love and ambition and desire in my life, but never in the same way as in a family.  (Claire Denis Quotes)
