german sort of. a story begins in france and nine hundred fifty six came secondary school and a degree in political science at the sub on before a fateful meeting with french cinematic masterly propelled she learned off into the world of film. me i was always so serious and strict and cloned offer time to germany in the mid one nine hundred sixty s. to make his first feature film young tellus is considered one of the most important films of the new german cinema movement and counted several awards. it was the tin drum a cinematic adaptation of going to classes novel of the same name the fortune of international acclaim. the film on her door at the cannes film festival in one nine hundred seventy nine has won an oscar for best foreign language film. by now
hollywood was taking notice but randolph took his time it would take a few more years before he moved to new york and make films like death of a salesman based on a play by our familiar. require foreigners serious thought the handmaid's tale. learned off decided to return to germany in the mid one nine hundred ninety s. one of his most successful phones from this time is the legend of research which tells the story of a radical west german terrorist who flees to east germany with a new identity to get some. now focus and off is back in new york this time with return to montauk let's leave based on a novel by. it's a love story and possibly and also most personal film. and i'm joined now in studio babbles with focus thank you joining us. you've had
decades in the film business can you pinpoint a point or a moment a person you met a film that you saw that put you on that path to become a filmmaker i saw. in the same summer i was probably fifty in a few films and one of them was on the waterfront and marlon brando you don't remember them i kind of had was kind of the kind of time. i could have been somebody. sterile but i was in trance but the actor modern brando about the filmmaking which i knew nothing about but about the possibility through a film or work of art to arouse such such passion and such deep feelings talk with your first film a young told us when it premiered in cannes in one thousand nine hundred sixty six and it caused a scandal at the premier tell me about that what what happened where there is
a scene these it's in a boarding school and. a group of pupils suppress the others and they have one guy they say he's different actually he's jewish they torture him and when these torture scenes very graphic i must say where we were shown the german cultural attache got up and slammed the door screaming this is not a german film he thought this would reflect on the set said distinct nature of the germans in general even schoolboys. but that was not the reason the film was a success i think. at the time it was one of the first of the young german cinema who came out there for us to want to be noticed that there was some others to follow. the german cinema before us was was
extremely conventional mellow drama. bad acting bad everything you know. i'm going to be. oh my god. i mean in the worst way could eventual formula movies and and we wanted to show you know normal street what people were like have actors who acted in a natural way in the news. because it doesn't suit you know movie considered but. now. you tried to reflect what was going on around you when you made a film like the last owner of cattle you know which was a very political it was happening at a time in the seventy's in germany where you had this wave of leftwing terrorism and on the other side incredible repression from the state and you made this film
about a woman who has one night of stand with accused terrorist and then is attacked for it by the right wing press and also the police. this witchhunt that some of the sixty eight students you know. went to violent means of protesting and i would say they were not stopped in time by us the others around you know there was even a certain sympathy for the devil there you know we all bore a certain responsibility. and this we should have escalated the violence before it got to that point that even an innocent girl that takes
a gun and shoots a jungle it's a few hundred sixty. trucks for this he explained as he points. your film return to montauk which has just come out in theaters what you're all my life is in the story the story of. first of all it's a very simple story a rider or a filmmaker comes to new york from europe from berlin to present his last piece yes to do some interviews and as soon as he's in town he's reminded of another woman whom he loved in this city years ago he goes to find her and
together they spend the weekend out on long island to far and montel they may both have been the love of their lives it didn't work out then is there a chance to make it work out now so it's it's a meditation more than an action movie. we have to talk about the tin drum which is your most famous film it's based on the famous novel. about a young boy growing up in the nazi time who out of protest refuses to grow and stays a young boy that film premiered as well in cannes where it won the palme d'or together with france for couple of office now can you tell me about that moment that moment when they announced your name. you know it in retrospect at the moment it's just pure joy but it was great like even like to be equal. with
this big big hollywood machine or. was it was really a small children's toy. so it was wonderful it is like from now on you you were on the playground of the big boys. i mean the big boys came coming the film went on to win the oscar but in rome did hollywood come calling some and never reached me one i reached me i think i've been. sitting on the chair of. steven spielberg i think this dates from when he was shooting the movie on the bridge here he was at the time doing the twilight zones series and for me to do one part and foolish enough refused and only years later three four years
later did i really that come to the united states but not to hollywood i came to new york to do with this of a salesman right which is one of my favorites of yours i mean it's a it's a it's such a powerhouse this play why am i trying to become one i don't want to be one of my two me going you know i think you know contemptuously taking all of my show when all that i want to stop you waiting for me the minute i say i know who i am now why can i say that when we don't feel like that's why nobody going to judgment show you . to be in new york and to work with often miller and to work on a daily with dustin and john malcolm which was such a way to immerse in american culture. that i think that will stay with me forever i have to we mention return to montauk you film at the very beginning of that there's a scene where the writer says the two types of regret in life the regret for things
that you've done and that you wish you hadn't done and the regret for things that you didn't do and ask you in your life your professional life what what films did you wish you hadn't done and what films have you not done that you wish you could well i have at least five pictures. as believe was used to say i'm divorced from that. the good thing is those are forgotten. banished into oblivion. film or no cage and i should have seized i think in retrospect. right after that. when i was in california i should have accept that challenge. spielberg offered to an episode of. twilight zone it would have trained me for the series there are so much involved now. thank you for joining us on q.
