Personal Quote:

I hate violence, and I think that violence is meaningful if you see the impact of violence on victims. I'm interested on the impact, I'm not interested in the show. I don't want to make a show of violence. I mean, I've been in contact with people who suffered from the trauma of war... When I use violence in a movie it's just to express the power, the impact of it. See more »
