North vs. South

"In a very subterranean way, I wanted to talk about how northern people always have this dream of the perfect South — this perfect island that is paradise.... But for many people without irony, who consider themselves civilized people, these dream islands are a sort of paradise for them. At the same time, they are completely afraid of this nightmare of being invaded by hordes of people from the South who are trying to intrude upon this beautiful occidental northern economy." - Clair Denis on her new film "The Intruder".
