Trophée des Arts 2007
"I have carried that love (for France) around with me for fifty years, and it’s still there, just as strong as ever.”
"For someone who was born in Marseille, coming to the United States has become a dream come true. I love this country because America is a place for entrepreneurs."
"Never has an American film director studied the lives of Americans in France as much as James Ivory did in his many films he directed abroad. James Ivory truly exemplifies the organization's mission to build cross-cultural relationships between France and the United States."
"James Ivory is such a beautiful example of what a global artist can be. If I could honor him every day, I would."
