Yes, but there was already something. Anyway, I didn't win. I used to tease him. I said, "You could have been the first film festival to take the first film of Fassbinder," but they did take virtually everything later. What are your plans now? Are you going to do more films?

I'm getting slowly ready to want it again. I've been out of movies 10 years. I have to wait. It's not something I can get into gear myself.

You have to write to the right person.

Maybe. Would you know any filmmaker that you'd judge to be the right one for me?

You give me your address and if I think of anyone I'll send it. After what you've done, you don't want to do something that isn't important.

I have made the observation—if I wish for something, at some point, it comes. For a long time I was quite glad I was not shooting anymore. I thought it was a waste of my time, but now I would like to do something again. I've always felt the best in life comes late.
