'I think it's very important to show women who don't fit in and who don't care if society judges them. Let other people be upset, but let these women speak out.'
'I have found it easier to identify with the characters who verge upon hysteria, who were frightened of life, who were desperate to reach out to another person. But these seemingly fragile people are the strong people really.'
The Asthenic Syndrome (1990) dir. Kira Muratova
