Homage: Julien Duvivier


Three frames from Un carnet de bal (Julien Duvivier, 1937)

"If I were an architect and I had to build a monument to the cinema, I would place a statue of Julien Duvivier above the entrance….This great technician, this rigorist, was a poet." -- Jean Renoir

"His mood is violent, and belongs to the underside of the stone" -- Graham Greene

"His cutting was extraordinary. Everything was planned out. He was an incomparable technician." -- Max Douy
