Berlin Film Review: ‘Return to Montauk’

15 February 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Return to Montauk” is Volker Schlöndorff’s tasteful, high-minded Euro-literate version of a Lifetime Movie — and I mean that (mostly) as a compliment. It’s the story of a famous novelist, Max Zorn, played by Stellan Skarsgård (and based on Schlöndorff’s friend Max Frisch, the celebrated Swiss novelist who died in 1991). He arrives in New York from his home in Berlin for a week-long stay to plug his latest masterpiece, but once there all he can think about is reuniting with Rebecca (Nina Hoss), who lit his flame 17 years ago. It’s a tricky situation, since Max is married. His wife, Clara (Susanne Wolff), lives in New York, half a world away from him, and if that sounds like an unconventional arrangement, it speaks to the essence of Max’s nature. He’s in his early sixties, worldly and authoritative, not just a novelist but a Continental philosopher of fiction, »

Berlin Review: ‘Return to Montauk’ is a Perceptive Reflection on the Past

15 February 2017 9:40 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“No one gets over anything,” remarks Stellan Skarsgård’s Max, rekindling with old flame Rebecca years after they last met. He was a fledgling writer, she an idealistic young student. But then they split up, he moved back to Europe and she became a hotshot lawyer in New York City. And neither ‘got over’ it. Now Max reflects in the words of his new novel: life is defined by what you did that you regret, and what you did not do that you regret; “The things that come between do not matter.” Seeing each other again, they travel to Montauk, the village at the end of Long Island, to look out to the open ocean and search for what they’ve lost. But all they can do is look back.

Volker Schlöndorff’s latest film has something of the Allen-esque themes of regret and unchangeable fate (the New York setting »

While filming Return To Montauk (Rückkehr Nach Montauk) in New York last spring, Volker Schlöndorff spoke to me on the set. His film will have its world premiere at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival in a couple of weeks. We discussed shooting in Berlin with Niels Arestrup and Stellan Skarsgård, connecting Sam Shepard to Max Frisch, Brooklyn author Colm Tóibín's Henry James in his novel The Master, Proust beyond Jeremy Irons in Swann In Love, shopping for clothes, Nina Hoss and Bronagh Gallagher at Lincoln Center, and what's in an affair.

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2017: #18. Roman Polanski’s Based on a True Story

9 January 2017 6:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Based on a True Story

Director: Roman Polanski

Writer: Olivier Assayas, Roman Polanski

After some more court related issues seemingly delayed his long gestating project The Dreyfus Affair, Roman Polanski has commenced filming a much smaller but arguably more intriguing production, Based on a True Story, with Olivier Assayas (who was a notable screenwriter for Andre Techine before branching out as an auteur himself) adapting from a novel by Delphine de Vigan (who penned the script for the 2011 film You Will Be My Son, featuring a nasty little performance from Niels Arestrup).
