– This made me very relaxed. It is very important not to try to please everyone because then you failed. Although I’m not sure that they quite hate my film. If it becomes very popular, I have a problem. How the audience perceived the film indicates that I did the right thing. In any case, I was pleased to work on this painting. I don’t know much about serial killers, but I know a little about psychopaths. And I never kill anyone… If I do, it will probably be the reporter. the Director said in an interview Cineuropa.org.
