Truffaut on Godard | June 23, 2012

This is Francois Truffaut writing about Jean-Luc Godard before their relationship deteriorated.

“He is not the only director for whom filming is like breathing, but he’s the one who breathes best. He is rapid like Rossellini, witty like Sacha Guitry, musical like Orson Welles, simple like Marcel Pagnol, wounded like Nicholas Ray, effective like Hitchcock, profound like Bergman, and insolent like nobody else.”
