Director's statement
“What I really enjoyed while shooting Master Spy is that it took me back to my own childhood in the 70's. My friends and I used to make up huge and exiting adventures. We utterly believed in these adventures. The fantasy and fun of creating your own world as a child is the base of this film. Anything is possible; you just have to imagine it!”
