”Det var første gang, jeg instruerede børn, og jeg lærte, at man skal bruge et naturligt skuespiltalent. Det er virkelig ikke min fortjeneste, at Anton Forsdik spiller sin karakter som sønnen så godt. Alt, hvad han gør foran kameraet, gør han med fuldkommen naturlighed og totalt nærvær. Han bliver en stjerne.”
“It was the first time I directed children, and I learned that you have to use a natural acting talent. It is really not my merit that Anton Forsdik plays his character as the son so well. Everything he does in front of the camera, he does with perfect naturalness and total presence. He will be a star. ”
