Herzog's comments on the film

"PETER AND BEN, the story of the man and his sheep in Wales (has) a wonderful human touch to it, all the other films are good - which is rare when it comes to a selection of six films, but they are more in the conventional area of documentaries.

If I could chose two films for best in the series, I would give the award ex aequo to AMASAN as well, but with only one choice at my disposal, it has to go to PETER AND BEN.

Werner Herzog"
