Quote by the Director

"In Lunch I really got into starting with that pink woman and having a good time just changing her into other people. [...] It was a job I did. A producer at the BBC submitted this idea about waiters and the difference between the atmosphere of the dining room and the atmosphere of the kitchen. I changed it into my own idea. I had to because he was a strong union man and wouldn't impose anything on the workers so he told the guys in the kitchen in the hotel where we were doing the tape recording that the microphone was there. So, of course, they didn't say anything pithy. They were being really good for the microphones. So there was no contrast. So, I just took it and got off on the food and the cell animation."
