"In my latest project, which is called Falling Sky, is directed by Gunnar Vikene. We are going to show it here in Berlin. I'm quite proud of it. It is a good movie and also an important movie.
I like to do important things. The most important thing is that somebody has something to say or to tell, then I don't care where they come from: it doesn't matter. Of course, since I'm here in Germany, I would like to meet the guy who made Das Boot (Wolfgang Petersen), one of the greatest movies ever made. I just would like to meet him and thank him for the good film. 'Norwegian saying/speech' - 'If you don't have anything to tell, shut up!'".
