Harvey Weinstein quotes :
It's the golden age of French cinema again but it's because Sarkozy had the guts to push through copyright law.Harvey Weinstein
I remember when I took Quentin Tarantino with me to a very private screening of the documentary 'Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired,' which shows some of the legal irregularities of his case. I was involved by the film, and it was an amazing experience to see people weep at the end of it.Harvey Weinstein
There is nothing like the way people feel after they've seen 'The Intouchables.' They feel amazing. The word of mouth on this film is incredible. It's intelligent-feeling good. You're not insulted by the low-browness or stupidity of some of the humor. It's so smart and terrific.Harvey Weinstein
I learned what I really love is making films, not the film business. I want to be on the set, meeting with writers, I want that freedom. I love it now.Harvey Weinstein
If an Internet company steals content, they shut it down. And let me tell you, Apple France, Yahoo France or Google France, none of them have gone out of business.Harvey Weinstein
I'm probably the only person who goes to work and says 'Wow, it's really nice here and sweet,' even in the competitive movie business.Harvey Weinstein
I just finished my homework fast, I was bored to death. There wasn't 500 channels so there was a thing for a librarian to teach a kid like me about reading. I started reading early and I read all the time, because I love it.Harvey Weinstein
I want to deal with somebody who comes from another country to the United States and has a family that comes. I don't care if it's a black family from Jamaica or a Hispanic family from Mexico. These issues need to be dealt with, but they need to be dealt with in the entertaining way.Harvey Weinstein
I hope to continue my friendship with France and its filmmakers for many years to come.Harvey Weinstein
