Spanish actor Javier Bardem and Mexican actor Salma Hayek talked about the film they are starring in, 'The Roads Not Taken,' ahead of its world premiere, during a press conference at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin on Wednesday.
"The Roads Not Taken had to do with some good choices that I must have made in my life, I think as a human being, as a woman, because they were brave and I could have stayed in Mexico doing novellas. And it has to do also with the faith of - I was convinced that things were going to change and I wanted to be a part of it, to be a part of the change," stated Hayek.
Bardem, took the chance to joke about the differences about actors and people who go crazy by stating: "We have the person who got crazy got one way ticket, we always come back. And yeah sometimes we stay a little bit too much on the terminal, a little bit too long on the terminal but we end up coming back, and what do we come back for or to? Family, the love that we feel for our loved ones and the story's about that."
The film's director, Sally Porter, also spoke about the project, relating that it was inspired in part by her experience caring for her brother before he died of early onset dementia.
'The Roads Not Taken' revolves around a day in the life of Leo (Javier Bardem) and his daughter Molly as she struggles with her dad's chaotic mind.
The 70th edition of the Berlinale International Film Festival is taking place until March 1.
