Denis served her apprenticeship as assistant to an improbable range of major-league directors, among them Jim Jarmusch, Wim Wenders, Dusan Makavejev and especially the enigmatic new wave veteran Jacques Rivette. What she learned most of all was a particular attitude to filming. "I never liked directors who simply shoot in order to translate a script into images.
