  • "That was a Japanese movie made in the Old West. Did you ever see Ran? That was an English play made in Japan. Did you ever see The Birdcage? That was a French movie made in Hollywood. We can do this. We just have to find some property, some old French movie, to show them. Like A Man and a Woman, something like that. Then we rewrite it and do what we want."
