At the Venice Film Festival 2004, after co-star Lauren Bacall had said that Kidman was not an acting legend, but rather a beginner; quoted by Pocklington Arts Centre http://www.pocklingtonartscentre.co.uk/film+feature/Birth

„It wasn't about, 'Oh I want to make a film where I get to kiss a 10-year-old boy'. To me it was I wanted to make a film where you're trying to understand love.“
