Bressonian Quote #14 - Notes from a Master Filmmaker

- The next few Bressonian quotes posted will all address his rigorous and innovative concept of 'human models' as an alternative to the classic actor - which accounts for much of the unique, raw, minimalist performance style that has become a signature of Bresson's films.

"Human Models:
Movement from the exterior to the interior. (Actors: movement from the interior to the exterior.)"

"The thing that matters is not what they show me but what they hide from me and, above all, what they do not suspect is in them."

"Between them and me: telepathic exchanges, divination."
- Robert Bresson
