Sometimes to look at things, you have to go very far to be, well, to have the possibility of taking a look at it. If you go too close, like in advertisement, you are so close to the products you don’t see anymore. That’s why you have to name it, because you don’t see anything, so you just name it. But sometimes, even in a love affair, sometimes you have to put some distance to discover the love again.

I think if movies are still successful, whatever the support is—tape or disk or, I don’t know, crystal in ten years or in a hundred years, I don’t know—it’s because movies are strongly related to our feeling of truth.
