"A thing that has failed can, if you change its place, be a thing that has come off"
"Retouching the real with the real"
"Don't think of your film apart from the resources you have made for yourself"
Extracts from Notes sur le Cinématographe by Robert Bresson.
Les moyens limités font souvent le charme et la force des peintures primaires. Au contraire l’extension amène les arts de décadence.
The limits set by the medium are frequently the source of fascination and power of the primary images. In contrast, extending them results in decadence.
