- Birthday, Film, Quotes

“Sometimes life has more imagination than we do.”

Happy birthday, François Truffaut! Here are some quotes from Truffaut and stills from his films:

“Three films a day, three books a week, and records of great music would be enough to make me happy to the day I die.”

The 400 Blows

“I demand that a film express either the joy of making cinema or the agony of making cinema. I am not at all interested in anything in between; I am not interested in all those films that do not pulse.”

Antoine et Colette

“I prefer to be busy all day long, and when you work for someone else, you’re not busy enough.”

Stolen Kisses

“When humour can be made to alternate with melancholy, one has a success, but when the same things are funny and melancholic at the same time, it’s just wonderful.”

Day for Night

The film of tomorrow will be an act of love.”
