The Old Man and The Sea. I loved the vividness of every moment of it.

My Name is Daniel Blake for its truthfulness.

Classical and jazz

Fruit!

I would love to meet Dario Fo and Charlie Chaplin for a glass of wine.

Enjoy either the sunrise or the sunset for the last time.

What is your greatest fear?
Waking up and remembering nothing and none
