Andrei Tarkovsky's quotes

  • My purpose is to make films that will help people to live, even if they sometimes cause unhappiness.
  • Always with huge gratitude and pleasure I remember the films of Sergei Parajanov which I love very much. His way of thinking, his paradoxical, poetical . . . ability to love the beauty and the ability to be absolutely free within his own vision.
  • The only condition of fighting for the right to create is faith in your own vocation, readiness to serve, and refusal to compromise.
  • So much, after all, remains in our thoughts and hearts as unrealized suggestion.
  • I think in fact that unless there is an organic link between the subjective impressions of the author and his objective representation of reality, he will not achieve even superficial credibility, let alone authenticity and inner truth.
  • Cinema is an unhappy art as it depends on the money. Not only because a film is very expensive but is then also marketed like cigarettes, etc.
  • Movement is made more meaningful in the context of stillness.
  • The longer I work in cinema the more convinced I am that this domain of art is not ruled by any laws. I do not even attempt to find them. Everything is possible.
  • Man needs Man.
