“A saints’ only requirement is to breathe.”
I was talking to an Italian friend a few nights ago. This is the second time she mentioned the phrase. It’s beautiful in its simplicity and because of that; it makes me think that it came from St. Francis of Assisi’s “Letters to Claire.”

Your work is visually very beautiful. Did you ever want to be an artist?
Unfortunately, I am unable even to draw a small house [laughs]. I wish I could paint, but I belong to the old-school theory that an artist must also possess technique. I don’t have that. The only technical ability I have is in film-making.
How do you feel about turning 50?
It was more fun when I turned 20! I might have a party, but I always say I will, then get the fear and cancel it two weeks beforehand.
