"Films have to be bigger than life". Interview in French newspaper Le Monde, 6 January 1993

Emir Kusturica looks like a big little boy, bad guy-good heart, rough and charming, always like going away. He was born in Sarajevo, thirty-three years ago. He was a rock'n'roll star in his country. His films show always children growing, curiously seducing and emblematic Animals, worlds disappearing, and splendid attempts to take off at the same time of the ground and reality. Long and difficult to make, Arizona Dream is his first American film.
