Personal Quote:

[on the message of The Cut (2014):] I come from a religious family, with strict dogmas and it took a while to get rid of them. I now have my own definition of what is right and wrong, good and evil. You can say I'm a spiritual person. The film is about that: Someone losing his religion but getting the sense of spirituality. See more »
