Leaving [home] is kind of a strange thing - the world opens up, but at the same time, it gets smaller. The more you see of the world, the smaller it seems. After I did the film "Stalingard," I left Germany, and I did a couple of films in France and lived there for about three years, and a couple of films in Italy, and lived there for two years. Then I came over here. The more you get familiar with different countries, the more you think, "Where am I going to live for the rest of my life?" You think, "OK, Germany sucks - don`t want to live there; France, no; Italy - the food is nice, but I don`t want to live there." In the end, you have nowhere to go anymore.
