Catherine Breillat's quotes

  • The problem is that censors create the concept of obscenity. By supposedly trying to protect us they form an absurd concept of what is obscene.
  • It's a joke - if men can't desire liberated women, then tough. Does it mean they can only desire a slave? Men need to question the roots of their own desire. Why is it that historically men have this need to deny women to be able to desire them?
  • For me, the outrage is that the world needs to know about the loss of virginity. There is such guilt associated with the fact that you want to make love, that you demand that your lover speaks words of love, whether he means them or not.
  • If you want to preserve your virginity, it's about not wanting to belong to the human species. To make love is not just to have the pleasure of flesh, but to have the pleasure of flesh escaping flesh. The sexual act involves a mental transfiguration, too.
  • If I stop making films, I will die. I can tell myself that one day I will stop living. But I cannot bear the fact that the day will come when I will no longer be making films.
  • I once wrote an article called 'The Importance of Being Hated', and though I would rather be loved and adored, because I am a human being like everyone else, I think the world still needs people who can speak their truth without fearing the consequences.
