We all lived together, we had a number of rooms on the same floor, same building. We really tried to make sure we had close relations. We also took care of hygiene, this was important. We looked at all the details, including the nitty gritty of life. That’s what you see in this production. The film is bigger than we are. We need to serve the film and we need to have this attitude of not wanting to hurt or damage the film.
