Interview in French newspaper Le Monde, 11 may 2005

Double Golden Palm winner, violently challenged for his commitment in favour of the Serbian regime of Slobodan Milošević during the war of Bosnia, Emir Kusturica is also a rock star. After a concert at the Zenith in Paris on April 21, he took the train the following day for Strasbourg, where he was going to give another concert. It is there, during the trip, that we interviewed him, after having let him sleep in a first class coach, during the first two hours. Hairy, not shaved, the future president of the jury of the Cannes Film Festival lent himself willingly to the questions & answers game.
