1983_0312_pinter_02 "Nearly all my work starts with an image, in the case of 'Betrayal' an image of a man and a woman sitting in a pub (the opening shot in the film). One merges this image with one's own observations and with one's own experience; one becomes curious about their past and what brought them to this place.

"I've had American studio executives say that their lives were saved during World War II by reading Proust, yet they won't try to get this film [Pinter's adaptation of "Remembrance of Things Past"] made -- it's too intellectual!"
