It may have been inevitable, but that doesn’t make the passing of a master any easier to accept. And I have to say, my master, one of a handful of filmmakers who have influenced me profoundly, at every level. All film lovers form strong, personal bonds with the work that has moved them. A few of us are lucky enough to be able to translate those feelings into words and images ourselves. As we do, we pay silent tribute to those who have shaped our views of the world, who have made a difference to us, and to the art we love beyond words.

Good-bye Alain Resnais, maitre du cinéma, and thank you. You will be sorely missed.
