He worked with nonprofessional actors--models... Notes on the Cinematographer (French: Notes sur le cinématographe) is a 1975 book by the French filmmaker Robert Bresson. It collects Bresson's reflections on cinema written as short aphorisms. In a career that spanned over forty years, Robert Bresson directed only thirteen feature films—plus a single short: not a large body of work for a man who ranks Bresson's name may not be prominent in many Hollywood databases, but his enduring respect by critics and cineastes continues unabated. Robert Bresson was a giant among directors, a consummate "filmmaker's filmmaker," who was able to make ugly things pretty, and pretty things beautiful, and the rest of it transcend what we normally imagine is possible in cinema. Directed by Martin Sundahl.
