If you catch me coming out of a film, when I'm emotionally involved, I can tell you at that moment why I like it - but to talk about it years later is not logical to me.
I think Woody Allen is Woody Allen, and no matter where he goes he still makes his Woody Allen films.
我认为伍迪·艾伦（Woody Allen）是伍迪·艾伦（Woody Allen），无论他去哪里，他都仍在制作伍迪·艾伦的电影。
I film normal-life subjects in natural settings that some people would consider uncinematic. But what I want to show is nature itself, as the truth of life.
My films have been progressing towards a certain kind of minimalism, even though it was never intended. Elements which can be eliminated have been eliminated.
Film is very much a universal and common voice, and we can't limit it to one particular culture.
Usually when I take my films to festivals, I feel incredibly anxious about them. I wonder how it will be received, how the audience will react. I feel deeply responsible for them.
通常，当我将电影带到节日中时，我会感到非常焦虑。 我想知道它将如何被接收，观众将如何反应。 我对他们负有深深的责任。
If you are a businessman or a politician in Iran, you can get a visa as quickly as you ask for it.
I don't know whether it is fortunate or unfortunate, but I have no such thing as national pride. I don't feel proud that I am Iranian. I happen to be who I am.
我不知道这是幸运还是不幸，但我没有民族自豪感。 我不以自己是伊朗人为荣。 我碰巧是我。
