Cuaron's Potter Exhaustion

Movie-maker ALFONSO CUARON is thrilled to have finished making HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, because the movie left him exhausted.

The Mexican director has spent the last two years making the third installment in the boy wizard adventures after taking over from American CHRIS COLUMBUS - and he's glad he only agreed to make one Harry Potter film.

When asked at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL if he was relieved when the film - which premieres next month (JUN04) - wrapped, Cuaron says, "Oh yeah.

"It's a long process. It was a pleasure every single instant. I was never stressed but I was completely exhausted.

"There is another thing about Harry Potter. You cannot rest. You have one day free and you walk in the street and there is Harry Potter iconography everywhere.

"It's not that you don't work one day and you can relax and not see your characters. The world is surrounded by Harry Potter."
