Interview with Jan Saudek

Together with Irena You co-wrote - as you agreed on how to stage a crossroads in your life scenarios include?
Irule is a complicated creature, intellectual. I turn primitives - this goes well together. Personally, however, I think that in my life, nothing special happened - but she sees it differently. The film is the story of such a life of one man, how it sees the woman. Sure, the film is a little shift elsewhere. It was cute with Iren again after many years of encounter. We are quite related, unfortunately, not physically.

Did you have any idea at the beginning, who should be in the film the main character? How to fulfill this vision Karel Roden?
Mr. Roden is a great actor - many times I was impressed with how you captured my anxiety and confusion. On personal life Overlord, the role played masterfully torn, the surface cynical guy, but shy and fanfarónského. It does not matter that looks infinitely better than I do - he played the soul, not the surface. Karel surprised me his view and mentality of the role he plays.

In the story you leave - even with all copyright license - insight into their privacy. You are very open ...
The dream of every photographer is that people will know its not just pictures. In the history of film it happened only once - and Antonionově Blow. But it should be a parody of David Bailey. My personal life? It is rather banal - but certainly not hiding anything, because it does not lie. But some moments I captured on photographs - and now I see that it was worth it - so it really was - and there are, those records poison Nou for all. I believe that any viewer at least appreciate that he was not lying.

The essence of the film is the story of your relationship to the female world - and not just as a lifelong artistic inspiration. Have you after all these life escapades understand anything about women?

Something about women I knew as a boy of fourteen - but only in theory - practice time came. In fifty asked me: "You, Johnny, how many women have had." Not one, I tell you. Is it possible to have a river or spring storm? Sun? Dawn? I did not have any, but some I might portray. But I did not understand anyway - I just feel boundless admiration, respect - and adoration phenomenon womanhood. Jim owe everyone in his life.
