Where are you from and where do you live now?
I’m from and currently living in Vienna. For me one of the most livable cities in Europe.
What is the greatest masterpiece of film in your opinion?
A masterpiece for me is actually “The Godfather.” In every sense. A timeless work. For me, a film is a “masterpiece” when it concentrates 100% on its story, trusts it, and gives it time to unfold.
A highlight in your career?
An important film was definitely “3 Days in Quiberon”. Walking in the footsteps of Romy Schneider was an incredible experience. There was something mystical about shooting in places where she must have been. Situations like this make filmmaking the most beautiful thing in the world for me.
