“Momo is a love for timelessness. Momo is my need to sink into my dream, to run through the head of the gloomy, cold reality which determines the lives of us- the elderly people. The memory of the child’s pleasure to eat a bowl of ice cream, to look right in the eyes of the sun and to cry of his rays. Momo is the childhood we can never escape from, no matter how hard we try to be settled adults. For years, I had dreamed of adapting this novel, and we’ve always passed each other. For many reasons. But now that I’ve been able to touch it, to live in it, to feel the freedom of Momo’s philosophy, I feel a little smaller, a little bit immature and much freer.

Thank you, Momo, thank you!”
