Did You Know?
[on the reception of Toni Erdmann
(2016)] I really didn't expect that so many people would like it. [With] my previous two films, maybe a bit more people liked them than didn't like them, but there were always people who said, "I don't like those films." With this one, I was expecting people to say, "No, it's too long, I don't like that woman..." I was expecting many more critics.
