I love French films, and European films. They`re not any bigger, but there`s just a sort of definition, and a confidence, and strength to them. I`d always, given the option, go and see a French drama. Obviously, we probably get the better ones. But they`re just sophisticated on many levels, and grown up, and quite profound - and we don`t make films like that.
