Chabrol gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses his least favorite aspect of creating a film, what he likes the most, and why he dislikes working alone.
The most beautiful thing in filmmaking and especially in a director’s job is the fact that it is a collective work. It’s amazing to have 50 people, very skilled in what they do, literally busting their asses to make the dream of the director come true. No other profession has this creative backup – maybe with the exception of an orchestra conductor who has all the musicians to play his music. But of course the director has to have a dream, otherwise it is useless.
