Mother courage

By GERALD PEARY  |  March 10, 2009

"I don't try to make my place in the history of cinema, but others place me, because of a daring film in 1954, or because of Cléo from 5 to 7: my little research in black-and-white about a woman pulled by the hair from death. I've done 15 long features, 15 long documentaries, not very much.

"Some people shoot every day. But being called 'Mother of the French New Wave'? I don't care! I love that!"
