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 it was. going to come to me. i could have been somebody . sterile but i was in chance but the actor modern brando about the filmmaking which i knew nothing about but about the possibility through film or work of art to rouse such such passions such deep feelings yet will talk with your first film 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 people built 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 the stick 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 the first one to be noticed that there was some others to fall. the german cinema before us was was extremely conventional mellow drama.
bad acting bad everything you know. i mean in the worst way could eventual formula movies and and we wanted to show you know normal street where people were like have actors who acted in a natural way in the. us. because. nobody can see that but on. just now. you tried to reflect what was going on around you when you made a film like the last owner of cattle you know bloom 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. it was this witch hunt 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 their 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. struck for this he explained. your film a return to montauk which has just come out in theaters what a viewer almight is in this story the story of. first of all it's a very simple story 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 women 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 montage 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 by going to a cross about a young boy growing up in the nazi time who of protests 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 couples of awful it's 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 tin drum was was
really small children's toy. so if it was wonderful it is like from now on you you are on the playground of the big boys. i mean the big boys king coming that film went on to win the oscar the tin drum did hollywood come calling some never reach you know one i reached me i think i've been. sitting on the chair or. to 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 what am i doing in that you know i think you know contemptuously taking all of my show when all that i'm just up to waiting for me the minute i say i know who i am now why can i say that when i don't feel like that's why i don't want to add i am going to touch and show you. to be in new york and to work with often miller and to work on the 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 mentioned return to montauk you film at the very beginning of that there's a scene where the writer says there are 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 i ask you in your life your professional life what what films to do 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 to oblivion. a film or location i should have seized i think in retrospect. right after the. when i was a california should have accept the 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. and for more on focus and his films check out our website that's it for
