I'm Nick, originally from the Pittsburgh area, currently pursuing my PhD in physiology and living in Switzerland. Penguins hockey, pumping iron, hip-hop, South Park, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, God & family are what's best in life. If you don't have a good sense of humor we probably won't get along.

“I think it’s very romantic. Back home, they call it an anti-love story. But the filmmaker, when he first started writing this film 12 years ago, he said he wrote it as a reaction to all these films that he was watching, which seemed like the actors were carved out of marble and made in the image of gods.
He wanted to make a film that was made in the image of man, that embraces that our faults are what makes us special and human. And these characters in this film couldn’t embrace each other’s faults, because they were trying to live up to some idea of perfection that only exists in movies. So, I think that it is romantic to acknowledge the faults.”
