You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger by Woody Allen - Press Conference

 

Woody Allen, who came to present his latest film Out of Competition, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, responded to questions from the press, alongside actors Lucy Punch, Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts and Gemma Jones.

Excerpts:
 
Woody Allen, on his world view:
I’m rather pessimistic, I always have been, even as a child. Life is a nightmarish experience; the only way to be happy is to lie to yourself! The only two people in my film who are happy are completely crazy.
 
Josh Brolin talks about his experience filming with Woody Allen:
He is a director who creates electricity on set, where anything can happen. He gives you full responsibility for your character. He is a very humble person. When he offered me the role, he sent me a note saying "You may remember me from the filming of Melinda and Melinda? I was the director!"
 
Woody Allen, on the themes of death and aging in his film:
 If I could be in as good shape as Manoel de Oliveira, I’d like to live to be a hundred! But I am not in favour of death. (...)
Getting old is really not an advantage. You don’t get any more intelligent or more generous. My advice is to avoid it!
 
About his calling as a director:
Many of my films have literary qualities. If I didn’t make films, I’d write novels.
