The director of the new Hitchcock movie has defended the legendary filmmaker after a rival drama portrayed him as a bully.
Sacha told The Independent: "He was a brilliant, obsessed director and he would push people. I don't think he was a sadistic monster."
He branded The Girl "a little bit of an oversimplification" adding: "It seems a rare one-note portrayal of a man who was a little more complex than that.
"A lot of people, who were there, do not recognise this portrayal of him as this monster."
