Bressonian Quote #18 - Notes from a Master Filmmaker

"The photographed theatre or CINEMA requires a metteur-en-scene or director to make some actors perform a play and to photograph these actors performing the play; afterwards he lines up the images. Bastard theatre lacking what makes theatre: material presence of living actors, direct action of the audience on the actors." 
 - Robert Bresson
