The woman at the window

She is an extraordinary actress and a very funny person, she connected very well with the entire cast and crew of the film because she is very communicative and open. It was a beautiful experience, a dream. I carry out the film with so much passion, patience and a lot of truth. ” For her part, Amy says: “I had a crazy desire to work with her, I always liked her work as an actress, I was always a very follower of her work. I thank God that he gave me the opportunity to work with her and share much more than one scene.

Film tastes

Julianne Moore: “I do not consume these types of films and less during the pandemic. I suffer when a character dies or I get sad. I prefer funny things, I watch many comedies, more in time of confinement to relax and laugh. Any type of comedy comes to me well, crimes and those kinds of stories are not for me. ” Coincident Amy affirms: “I only watch my films once and that’s enough. When I saw this one I was impressed with the vision of the director and how he showed the drama, the psychological part of the story, the mental health … I was again surprised by all the performances. I’m not the traditional viewer of this type of thriller, but I can say it was great. I was talking about it with my husband the other night: I think it perfectly combines the dark side with the psychological. It’s incredible how reality is created in the middle of a story like This. I’m like Julianne, I don’t watch crime movies. ”
