What do you think Americans are more at ease watching violence than lovemaking? It's not only Americans. It's the Western world. I probably couldn't get anyone in America to finance this movie. We made the movie with European and Brazilian money, but then once it was completed Alchemy bought it for the States. But I think the whole Western world is missing something when it comes to what it considers the main obsession of most people. War is about domination. Love is not. Love is mostly about the reproduction of the species. It's in the genetic code.
