FERNANDO TRUEBA:
Andrés Gómez, my friend and my producer. I want to thank you all in the name of all the friends who made "Belle Epoque." Some of them are here, some in Spain, some in France, and some in Portugal. I want also to thank the family of Sony Pictures Classics. And I would like to believe in God in order to thank Him, but I just believe in Billy Wilder, so... thank you, Mr. Wilder.
