Krohn: You spoke years ago (in a Cahiers interview) about wanting to film Mount Analogue with the budget of BRIGITTE AND BRIGITTE. It seems that the theme of money, economics, the restraints on productivity, the process of production, has surfaced in your films. You're showing the check that arrives and enables you to make the film, the materials that are used to make the film itself, etc. I almost wonder if you aren't deliberately pursuing a course that will not allow you to film Mount Analogue, or whatever big and expensive film you might have in mind. Or is this your own sordid fate, that you're unable to do the large-budget picture? Again, is there a morality of... economy?

Moullet: Yes, but I don't make films in order to struggle against economic realities. I make films which are in harmony with their budgets. If you gave me two million bucks, I'd enjoy making a film with a lot of fantasy. I tried this in THE SMUGGLERS, even though it was a $14,000 film.


"To show that there is a world outside the dullness and boredom of naturalism, the world of the imagination. Of course, this conversion must take place without the director and his collaborators losing their grasp of the world of reality. His remodeled reality must always remain something that the public can recognize and believe in. It is important that the first steps towards abstraction be taken with tact and discretion. One should not shock people, but guide them gently onto new paths."
