Werner Herzog on Languages

How many languages do you speak, Herr Werner?

Not too many, I mean: Spanish, English, German, and then I spoke modern Greek better than English once. I made a film in modern Greek, but that’s because in school I learned Latin and ancient Greek, so from modern Greek to ancient Greek it’s not that far. And I do speak Italian and I do understand French but I refuse to speak it. The last thing you could ever do … you can only get some French out of me with a gun pointed at my head.
