“He remembers those vanished years. As though looking through a dusty window pane, the past is something he could see, but not touch. And everything he sees is blurred and indistinct.”


“I know what would happen [in Hollywood]. I look at Hollywood movie posters and I know what to expect. I do not want more fame or more money. I am happy with what I have. I do not want to make a film to make a film. I just want to have a nice life–not a career. […] I don’t actually enjoy making films, to be honest. Well, I enjoy acting, but only after they say ‘action’, when the camera is rolling. Hair and make-up, promotion, waiting around, I’m fed up with all of that. It’s taken up too many years of my life… Pride is more important to me now, because your films live with you forever. I’m never going to make another one that I don’t care for.”
