Claire Denis's quotes

  • I have a dreamy distance with reality, which is not a really good thing.
  • Every image is about subjectivity.
  • Life is made of the only thing you can decide, the rest you can not: to commit suicide or to kill someone. The rest, happens.
  • The cinema gives pleasure, certainly. But most of all for me, film-making is a journey into the impossible.
  • Oh, I hate post-screening Q&As! You see a film, you don't want to ask questions. All those stupid explanations!
  • I guess my films are made out of tenderness and love of human beings even when they can be very brutal.
  • Memory, time, cinema. It's the same thing, really.
  • [about Africa, where she spent her childhood] When I die, if I'm conscious, these are the landscapes and faces I will remember.
  • For me, the monster is invisible. If there is a small thread running through all my work, it is that evil is never the other, everything is inside and never outside.
