Born: November 10, 1955 in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

I came to film school in 1977 when directors like Fassbinder and Wenders were everybody’s heroes. But it was also the time that Star Wars and Close Encounters came out, and these were the seminal movies for me. Everybody is always so careful about these things. I mean, I’m good friends with Wim Wenders, but it doesn’t mean I have to like his movies. Some of them, I like. Most of them, I find boring. And I would tell him that to his face.
