On March 14 I turned 83, so it can be said that I am living overtime and I have lived it very happily. If I can live 10 more years, it would be a tip that will give me life, but I am not anguished or whipped; I just want to keep working on what I do: writing, directing, acting and fulfilling my cycle. With that, I am more than satisfied.
