    Jean Marais in “Orphée”

  8. I like that film very much. I am proud of it. In the first place, I am proud that it didn’t win a Golden Lion or a Silver Peacock.

    That’s one thing. The other is that I had to make the film under the most difficult conditions. I had no technical prerequisites, no Kodak material, no processing of the film stock in Moscow. I had absolutely nothing. I had neither enough lighting, nor a wind-machine, nor any possibility for special-effects. Nevertheless, the quality of the film is indisputable.

    The results were the appearance of a primitive realistic milieu, like in a typical village or the average steppe. Little turkeys made to look like little turkeys…a fairy tale molded from a real situation…different ways to give the impression of “hyper-realism.” If I needed a tiger, then I would make a tiger out of a toy - and it would have more effect than a real tiger would have. A rag-tiger to frighten the hero would be more interesting.
