"Woody Allen gives an interview to The Wall Street Journal answering questions on such topics as love, death and financing a film: "WSJ: Your financial backers in Europe don't ask to read the script in advance or have a say in casting. But are there some other strings attached? WA: Yes, there are, but the people are usually sweet. Sure, there are dinners but very often the people in foreign countries are fun to socialize with. They're international and charming and nice and they don't talk to you about your film. That's nothing compared to having to sit in a room with three people who are fine businessmen but wouldn't have a clue how to make a film. I'd bankrupt their studio and they'd ruin my film. It's just been good luck."
