• "It doesn't matter where the world goes, even if I can't speak a foreign language, I don't feel out of place. I think of the earth like my home ". Akira Kurosawa

• "Unlike all other forms of art, cinema is able to capture and render the passage of time, to almost stop it from possessing it in infinity. I would say that film is the sculpture of time". Andrej Tarkovskij

• "I'm just a storyteller and cinema seems to be my medium. I like it because it recreates life in motion, it enhances it ... it's my way of telling a story". Federico Fellini

• "Cinema is the only form of art in which works move and the viewer remains immobile" Ennio Flaiano

• "Cinema is a cultural industry. Making films also means taking on a social and moral responsibility. Therefore we don't have to produce what you can sell, but sell what you want to produce "Franco Cristaldi

•" I think that scandal is a right ... "Pier Paolo Pasolini

• "Acting is listening ..." Pupi Avati

• "I think the past influences the ability to tell stories" Joel Coen

• "Cinema is beautiful if it can read reality" Ettore Scola

• "A film is the life to which the boring parts have been cut out ... There is something more important than logic: it's the imagination "Alfred Hitchcock

•" To love is to be busy, to work, to have interests, to create ... "Lina Wertmuller

•" If it can be written or thought, it can be filmed "Stanley Kubrick

•" There is a darkness, a darkness, intrinsic in every culture that cannot stop taking, a 'greed from which you can never go back "Martin Scorsese

• "As a rule I foresee that of each of my films there is only one version: mine ..." Lars von Trier
