Personal Quote:

[on movie-making and his film 'Picture Claire'] Often when you are doing something you have no idea. You know it is a handsome production. You knew it was well-performed. But there is this sort of mercurial thing. The bird sings or the bird doesn't sing. In our case the bird didn't sing. You just hope till the very end that people say "Oh, it's great." See more »
