Thank you very much for the honor and for honoring "The Mission." I'd like to thank David Puttnam and Fernando Ghia and Warner Bros. I'm very proud to have worked with a very fine crew and a cast who gave so much to the film. But most of all thank you to Roland Joffé and his vision and his inspiration. Thank you.
