Nature is full of drama. I know nothing about biology, about birds, about insects, about the details of politics. I just make movies about human interest stories.
I always loved Japanese movies. And they had an enormous impact in France – the Nouvelle Vague took so much from them. It taught us how the camera was placed in the centre of the action.
