Personal Quote:

[on Kang-sheng Lee] When I found Lee Kang-sheng on the street, I invited him to be in my films. Since then, his perfect embodiment of an anti-actor has had a profound impact on my work.

Trivia:

His favorite film is François Truffaut's The 400 Blows (1959), featured in What Time Is It There? (2001), which also features Jean-Pierre Léaud in a cameo appearance. See more »
