"I filmed this conversation with Bresson in March 1965. He had not made a film for some years, and I think he felt the need to talk to someone much younger than himself - I was 23 - to set out his ideas about the cinema. I appear here and there in the film myself, which is natural since it was a conversation. But I have always liked to think that Bresson was directing me in my questions, all the more since he virtually rewrote the questions personally. We actually added the questions after the answers, to make the conversation more orderly, because what Bresson likes most of all is to answer questions he puts to himself." (François Weyergans, from the "Introduction" to the re-edited film, 1994)
