I don’t need anybody
“I don’t need anybody”
-His characters are young. What did you use to do when you were that age?
Watch TV. I would waste between six and eight hours a day watching the worst stuff. And i don’t believe people change when they grow up”.
-You like writing so much. What happens when the moment to direct comes?
It makes me sick. I don’t really enjoy filming at all. I also find it hard to start writing, because being locked up as I usually am I say to myself, “Please, when will the time to start filming come so I can be with other people?” But when it comes, it’s hell.
-A happy ending is a bad ending?
Hmm.. I don’t think so.. A sad ending is better. I’m often accused of being cynical; I’d rather say I’m skeptical.
“I don’t see anything wrong about being pessimistic. Pessimistic people see the world with a little more sense of reality, I think. And this is painful. There are people who have a certain talent to see things from a good perspective. I don’t. Maybe there are good things, but I’m afraid it makes me more nervous to notice I’m missing them”.
-What causes your predilection for characters who are between childhood and adolescence?
When I was 14 I wondered why adults couldn’t have an interest conversation with me. They treated me like a pet. I thought I could have serious conversations. On the other hand, I love working with kids.
