Lukas Moodysson (dir. of Mammoth, Lilja 4-ever): It’s very dangerous to listen to both sides when people say good and bad things about you, because it’s very easy to try to live up to people’s expectations and try to show that you want that kind of attention again. I think that I deliberately – not with my film but in other ways – said "I’m not a nice person". Now I feel like I wanna be a nice person again, but at that time it felt like I just wanted people to like me very much (smiles).

The Russian version of the interview was published in a magazine of the cultural resistance SHO.
