"There’s a great Hollywood saying that goes: ‘If you have a message, call Western Union.’ It’s not that I don’t have anything to say about the world we live in, it’s just that I have a story to tell. But it’s a story that has some symbolic aspects, for sure. I’d be incapable of making a full-on drama in the same way as I’d be incapable of making 90 minutes of comedy. My films always fluctuate between comedy, tragedy, slapstick, melodrama… That’s why I’m a filmmaker, not a political activist, because I tend to see both sides of every argument."
