Example text

No, clever is the wrong word: it’s so moving. q: It’s all about trying to organize emotions in a sequence. d: Yeah, and to have a lot of different colors of emotion, and to jump from the emotion to the idea. It’s more than the kid crying in the paddy wagon because he will be taken far from Paris, or because of his father. It’s not just to make us cry it’s to make us think about it, to realize that the system shouldn’t be like this, or that the paddy wagon he’s riding in is also a carriage from a fairy tale.

Which is strange for me because actually, I don’t know René Clair, since he was not shown on TV when I was a kid. Truffaut was trying to tell some journalists – intellectuals and writers, not really film lovers – why pure mise-en-scène is so important. Truffaut said, “You know, in a René Clair movie,” and he quotes Clair against himself, which is to my mind a sin, to say bad things about a director when you are a director. But Truffaut comes from a different generation, and he attacks Clair because Clair left France for America, for his supposed love for American films.

When the ego of the director is the show that you are paying the ticket for, this is not at all the same thing that Truffaut was doing for a living, which was politique des auteurs, different from this American idea that the only thing valuable in a film would be the director. You don’t have this exactly in Truffaut. The film is there first for him. q: Could you comment on Truffaut’s definition of “auteur”? You have Hitchcock, Nicholas Ray, or in France, Renoir, Cocteau. d: And Guitry. It took me a while to understand his taste in auteurs, like his passion for Sacha Guitry, which is a very French thing that even I will never understand because he’s not part of my generation.
