I think what connects the stories for me, and what I like about them, is that they are about people trying to do their best, trying to do good things and be good people, but they are not always capable of doing it.
It means it is a very human story as it is about impulses and desires, and the fact that sometimes something inside you can take you in a different direction. I thought that was fascinating and I wanted to explore it.
There are several tones to the film and I think that’s what I enjoy because the story of Rachel Weisz and Jude Law is about this couple where one is cheating the other, it’s not a romance, it’s a romantic tragedy I would say.
Then we have a bit of romance between Jamel Debbouze and Dinara Drukarova in Paris, it’s a very sad romantic film, and then we have a bit of thriller in Vienna with the Russians and some guns and people chasing the other, and a bit of comedy with Moritz Bleibtreu.
What I’m really enjoying about the film is every new story, every time I start a different story it feels a bit like a different film, or it’s a different feeling. When I was shooting in Paris I was telling a sad story, and in Vienna there’s a lot of action so there’s a different base and I enjoy that a lot.
