Sound Bite: Valentina Cervi & Pierfrancesco Favino – to be in a Spike Lee movie
Cervi – No.
Favino – Absolutely.
Cervi – Well you know we didn’t think about but we’re very honored to be a part of this movie. Not only because of the subject but because of Spike Lee and I’ve always admired his work and his vision. You know for me the most important thing when you meet a director is the vision. It’s and it’s the environment he’s going to you know put you in, it’s not only about the character so um yeah it was amazing and Spike Lee’s a great great great director.

Sound Bite: Valentina Cervi & Pierfrancesco Favino – is Spike different than expected
Favino – You know I didn’t have time to expect anything because I never thought that could happen so I mean I never thought as Spike Lee as man, as real man, but as a director so when I happened to face him I didn’t have any kind of prejudice or great expectations about him so everything was very fluent and I just had fun and and I enjoyed very much working with him.
Cervi – You always heard stories of Spike being a hard director and being, and it’s not. I mean he’s hard because he has to get the work done, that’s his objective, you know it’s his mission.
Favino – His focus.
Cervi – He’s very focused but he’s one of the most um trustful you know people the actors he’s working with, he’s, you can rely on him, you can really rely on him and that’s amazing.
