On seeing Le voyage en Ballon:

It’s the first film I remember. It’s the film I like to re-watch the best. When you’re young, you’re very receptive to all the stuff you see, the emotions. And then you try all the time to match up with those sensations. So in this sense it may have changed my life because I’m always trying to re-create this feeling of watching this movie.

—Michel Gondry
