1 We have a certain warped sense of humor in Scandinavia, and that is what comes across in the choices in a lot of our movies.
2 Often when you get a really good script, and you receive the new pages, you see that the entire thing has been dumbed down. Films in the '30s and '40s, that were huge blockbusters, were very sophisticated in their language, and the ideas they brought. There were no questions about whether the audience would get it or not. Today there is a certain fear, or horror, that the audience won't understand. They underestimate the audience very often. And that is because, when you look at the box-office to see that total braindead films make lots of money, then that's what the cash machine is telling you to do. In other words: More braindead, more money!
3 [on The Hunted (2003)] I trained with the FBI in Portland and I also had many conversations with female FBI agents in Los Angeles, as well. That was again something that also came in very handy for Basic (2003), because I'd learned already how to handle a gun and how to behave just physically when you're in a situation, a threat. That was very good to know. I didn't have to do that again.
4 I'm definitely more attracted to chaos than to order. The point is, I find the female roles out there very cliché. If we are limited to being only lovers or mothers, we are limiting ourselves.
