Bresson week part 2

CINEMA films are historical documents whose place is in the archives: how a play was acted in 19… by Mr. X, Ms. Y.
An actor in cinematography might as well be in a foreign country. He does not speak its language.
To think it more natural for a movement to be made or a phrase to be said like this than like that is absurd, is meaningless in cinematography.
No marriage of theatre and cinematography without both being exterminated.

[Robert Bresson]
