doing the film

Playing the part was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my whole life. It was a great relief when I received the award afterwards. But I have to point that the acting is in my head - whereas the music is in my heart.

This film was just an adventure for me - a very interesting adventure, though. I don’t think I’ve ever been as happy as when I received the price in Cannes. When I make music, I’ve got a certain instinct, which tells me if it’s good or bad.

It doesn’t matter if I get bad reviews, because I’m always ten times harder to myself. That’s why I’m not very affected by critics, because I don’t care what other people think. But during the filming I didn’t really know if my acting was good or bad, so I gladly accepted all the flattering talk from the movie-business.
