What creative possibilities did it give you Black Widow When compared to other films I’ve directed?
Chances are that we’ve shot all over the world – in Morocco, Norway, the UK, Hungary and the US – so the film has an incredibly international vibe. The other thing he gave me was the possibility of making a show, I was able to create worlds. I loved shooting some action sequences because you have six or seven minutes on screen where you try to make the audience feel something, without resorting to dialogue. I have been able to create long and beautiful sequences full of surprises and beauty, and that has been very fun and very addictive. I want to do it over and over again
Have you ever imagined that you are shooting this kind of movie and scenes?
Absolutely. I came from a low-budget cinematic tradition and when Marvel came to me, I thought, “This is crazy, why are they asking me to do this?” But what I’ve come to understand from working with them is that it’s all about the character and arrangement of the story. So when they saw my movies, they found out the connection I didn’t see at the time.
In your previous films you have dealt with sexuality, strength and imperfection. In a way, did you also explore these themes through the character of Natasha Romanov?
Of course, because she is a woman and we always see her within a power structure, we struggle to tear down those walls. In this particular movie that was crucial. The issue of sexuality is also explored because in the past they saw it as a fetish – almost as if it was created for men – but it wasn’t really known and we wanted to let that go. When it comes to imperfection, she is a flawed human being and has always found it very hard to forgive herself for that, so in this film we wanted to explore what that means for her and how she finds a new way of being through forgiveness. itself.
Have you had a chance to discuss some aspects of her personality with Scarlett Johansson?
Yes from the start. When I was in Australia they offered me [Marvel Studios] Working with them, I wasn’t sure if I was the right person for the project, so Scarlett asked for a Skype call with me. I talked to her about Natasha Romano and that conversation got me interested in the project, because Natasha is a very complex woman and I thought it would be fun to work with her.
