I came here for approval, and we shouldn't do that. We should be proud of what we are. And Andersen had the same problem in his own country. People in Denmark loved his fairy tales but they didn't take him seriously as a writer because he was writing for children. So he needed to come to Paris as well, and be approved of by Balzac or George Sand or Victor Hugo — just as we need to be approved of by the old country. It's like being in a colony sometimes [laughs]. That's why I'm very proud of working with Lepage, because he [raises] Quebec to another standard. His work is totally amazing. *
