"Every director tries to impose on his movies his own truth, his own reality. Most of my decisions are instinctive. I have to admit that I enjoy this fight between author, cinema and fake Hollywood stories. But artistic honesty depends on your intentions as a director, not in the technique. It’s really easy to lie in cinema. Even if you are into realism, not using any kind of special effects, it’s easy to hide the truth from the audience."
