Letter from an Unknown Woman

Letter from an Unknown Woman

“Have you ever shuffled faces like cards, hoping to find one that lies somewhere, just over the edge of your memory? The one you’ve been waiting for? Well tonight when I first saw you, and then later when I watched you in the dark, it was as though I’d found that one face among all the others. Who are you?”

Stefan in Letter from an Unknown Woman


“I think, and this is nearly an axiom with me, that there are as many creators to a film as there are people who work on it. My job as director consists of making, out of this choir of people, a creator of films.”
