French Film quotes by Cush Jumbo

And even though the language is different, if the film is successful, it has something very common and understandable. - Author: Wong Kar-Wai
French Film quotes by Wong Kar-Wai
#4. African films should be thought of as offering as many different points of view as the film of any other different continent. Nobody would say that French film is all European film, or Italian film is all European film. And in the same way that those places have different filmmakers that speak to different issues, all the countries in Africa have that too. - Author: Elvis Mitchell
French Film quotes by Elvis Mitchell

French Film quotes by David Zayas

French Film quotes by Kevin Kline

CAUTION: Try to stop me, pal. - Author: Jean-Luc Godard
French Film quotes by Jean-Luc Godard

French Film quotes by Monica Bellucci
#11. I have found in the world of film many movies including Beyond Rangoon, The Crow, Gandhi, Doctor Zhivago, and The Big Blue, a French film, convey similar understandings. I'm sure the list is endless. These are just a few of my favorites. - Author: Frederick Lenz
French Film quotes by Frederick Lenz
#12. But strangely, [in] the original Matt Helm books, he's just this super hardass assassin. They sort of made it into a sexy romp for the movies. The books are very, very dark. I also watched OSS 117: Cairo, Nest Of Spies, which is a French film. They just made a second one, I think, which is based on like, 100 novels. They're just fantastic. They're set in the '60s. A lot of the visual inspiration definitely came from 1960 James Bond movies and OSS 177 and also Pink Panther movies. - Author: Adam Reed
French Film quotes by Adam Reed
#13. I haven't thought about making a music film, but if I did, that would be a very interesting idea. - Author: Lenny Kravitz

French Film quotes by John Updike
#15. There is something particularly fascinating about seeing places you know in a piece of art - be that in a film, or a photograph, or a painting. - Author: Sara Sheridan
French Film quotes by Sara Sheridan
#16. Poor Englishwomen! When it comes to their clothes- well, the French reaction is a shrug, the Italian reaction a spreading of the hands and a lifting of the eyes and the American reaction simply one of amused contempt. - Author: James Laver
French Film quotes by James Laver
#17. The French revolution taught us the rights of man. - Author: Thomas Sankara
French Film quotes by Thomas Sankara

French Film quotes by Mandy Moore
#19. I've made the film 'The Good, the Bad, the Weird,' which was an Eastern Western film. Obviously, the Western film is American and American only; there's really no Western genre over in Asia. - Author: Kim Jee-woon
French Film quotes by Kim Jee-woon
#20. At the end of the day, it's all one version of telling a story. I treated this as if it was a two million dollar independent film. I did a lot more physical work than I'd probably have to do for a two million dollar independent film with four months of training and stuff. But as far as the character's psychology or emotional life goes, I treat it just the same. - Author: Colin Farrell
French Film quotes by Colin Farrell

French Film quotes by Stephen Chow

French Film quotes by Doug Peacock
#23. Dorothy looked at everything as though it might vanish. The bright daily pottery, the spice-jars, the sweep of the staircase, the pigeons in the stable yard. What had been real was now like a thick film, a coloured oilcloth, spread over a cauldron of vapours which shaped and reshaped themselves into shadowy forms, embracing, threatening, glaring. - Author: A.S. Byatt
French Film quotes by A.S. Byatt
#24. She often felt like she had been cast in a supporting
role with the film that was Louise. And there was more melodrama to be found there than a full-scale Merchant-Ivory period production. Tonight, she was certain, would be no exception. - Author: Kerri Thomson
French Film quotes by Kerri Thomson
#25. Our film industry, must cease portraying us as a nation of decayed values, fallen moralities and juju-obsessed people. - Author: Sunday Adelaja
French Film quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#26. I write in the most classical French because this form is necessary for my novels: to translate the murky, floating, unsettling atmosphere I wanted them to have, I had to discipline it into the clearest, most traditional language possible. - Author: Patrick Modiano
French Film quotes by Patrick Modiano
#27. The Irish are hearty, the Scotch plausible, the French polite, the Germans good-natured, the Italians courtly, the Spaniards reserved and decorous - the English alone seem to exist in taking and giving offense. - Author: William Hazlitt
French Film quotes by William Hazlitt
#28. The film's title star, Christian Bale, told me in June that he'd signed a multi-picture contract. When I caught up with Batman Begins ... All I can tell you is, we're talking. There was quite an air of secrecy around the development of 'Batman Begins,' and there will be even more around the development of another film, if they move forward. - Author: Christopher Nolan
French Film quotes by Christopher Nolan
#29. The scripts for Marco Polo are absolutely, positively fantastic. The challenge of making that show in China has proved to be as formidable as we feared. It's not like making a movie in China where, once you load up and you leave, you're gone. We have to be able to come back and capture something that's going to feel like a major feature film, on a television budget, and do it, hopefully season after season, so we are taking more time than the producers thought. - Author: Chris Albrecht
French Film quotes by Chris Albrecht
#30. We knew each other to our fingertips. No, that's not right. We only knew each other in our fingertips, and that was nothing at all, and for a while that was okay. We could have been a love story, a fairy tale, an indie film about high school and selective insanity featuring a boy of angel parts and a girl made of dreaming. We could have been all the best things: bracelets sliding down arms while shots slid down throats, laughter and crashing music in dark and flashing rooms, kisses that started hesitant but didn't stay that way. - Author: Amy Zhang
French Film quotes by Amy Zhang
#31. There's a lot of time sitting in movies, so you can put alligators in people's trailers in your spare time. So it [making a film] moves slower, which in some ways is great, because you can live with a scene and invest in it a lot. And in some ways it's hard, because sometimes you can start to lose your energy a little bit, but both are fun. - Author: Mary-Louise Parker
French Film quotes by Mary-Louise Parker
#32. Of course, like all film-makers I've been mesmerised by cinema since I was a child. - Author: Anthony Minghella
French Film quotes by Anthony Minghella

French Film quotes by Wang Leehom

French Film quotes by Lynn Viehl

French Film quotes by Stephen Frears
#37. WI played a young Helena Bonham Carter in a BBC film called 'A Dark Adapted Eye,' and I thought she was a completely spellbinding person. Totally unmoved by other people's expectations, fashions or opinions. She's probably the coolest English actress there is. Incredibly idiosyncratic. - Author: Honeysuckle Weeks
French Film quotes by Honeysuckle Weeks
#38. The British are supposed to be particularly averse to intellectuals, a prejudice closely bound up with their dislike of foreigners. Indeed, one important source of this Anglo-Saxon distaste for highbrows and eggheads was the French revolution, which was seen as an attempt to reconstruct society on the basis of abstract rational principles. - Author: Terry Eagleton
French Film quotes by Terry Eagleton
#39. Sometimes you don't know you wanted something until you have it. Sometimes you don't know you need something until it's there. - Author: Nicole French
French Film quotes by Nicole  French

French Film quotes by Sam Branson
#41. There's a lot of great stuff on television and that's very appealing to actors who want to work, who do good quality and high quality work. But you're always concerned that the time demands on television will interrupt or interfere with your film work. - Author: Wesley Snipes
French Film quotes by Wesley Snipes
#42. I have no relationship to the French bourgeoisie. I don't like connecting with them. - Author: Claire Denis
French Film quotes by Claire Denis
#43. I've done movies that I've been advised not to do. 'Dog Soldiers,' the movie I did 11 years ago now, I remember my agent at the time was like, 'You shouldn't do that. It's a weird film about werewolves,' and it became a cult hit. - Author: Kevin McKidd
French Film quotes by Kevin McKidd
