A new interpretation of the quantum interference, as a filtering in the phase space, is proposed. This filtering is applied to the quantum wavefunction, considered as an amplitude probability distribution, and is due to the mismatch of the phase space areas of the quantum system and the experimental set-up. The quantum particle is considered to have physical reality and is distinguished from a classical particle through the inherent impossibility of assigning to it a sharp phase space localizability.
