Although, in recent years, Woody has been reluctant to give interviews, in this talk of almost an hour they addressed various topics, leaving aside all those controversies that had them as protagonists in recent times. 

“I'll probably do this movie more, but I've lost a lot of the emotion, because it doesn't have the same cinematic effect, it's not like when I started filming,” said the renowned director. 

It's worth mentioning that This is not the first time that the Manhattan  director has made similar comments, since on different occasions he has shown that the new ways of making movies are not to his liking. “Cinema is taking a direction that doesn't interest me.”

Added to this, Allen stated: “I don't have as much fun making a movie as I did when I made them and I had the pleasant feeling that there was 500 people watching it at the same time. Today I don't know how I could feel making movies again. I'm going to do another one and see how it feels.”
