When Volker Schlöndorff sent me the call sheet for his Return To Montauk shoot in New York City, we arranged a schedule for me to be on set to document the goings-on as he was filming at the New York Public Library and up at Lincoln Center. The film, co-written with Colm Tóibín, stars Stellan Skarsgård and Nina Hoss with Niels Arestrup, Susanne Wolff (Dominik Graf's Dreileben 2: Don't Follow Me Around), Isioma Laborde-Edozien, Mathias Sanders and Bronagh Gallagher (Alan Parker's The Commitments).

Volker and I met at his hotel the day after he was shooting in the Financial District, for a conversation that led us to a quote from Thoreau, connecting Sam Shepard to Max Frisch, Colm Tóibín's Henry James in his novel The Master, »

John Crowley's Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan with Emory Cohen, Domhnall Gleeson, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent, adapted screenplay by Nick Hornby, is based on Colm Tóibín's novel of the same name. On set with Stellan Skarsgård, Susanne Wolff, Isioma Laborde-Edozien and Mathias Sanders for Volker Schlöndorff's Return To Montauk (Rückkehr Nach Montauk), Tóibín, who is the co-writer with Volker, points to the face of Liv Ullmann on camera as inspiration, to Saoirse, and now Nina Hoss. Niels Arestrup will take on "W", the art collector.

Volker Schlöndorff, Oscar-winning director for The Tin Drum, based on Günter Grass's novel Die Blechtrommel, invited me to join him on the set for his latest film, Return To Montauk (Rückkehr Nach Montauk), while he was shooting scenes with Stellan Skarsgård and Susanne Wolff at the New York Public Library. The film also stars Nina Hoss and Niels Arestrup (brilliant in Diplomacy with André Dussollier).

Cannes: Volker Schlondorff Shoots ‘Return to Montauk’ With Stellan Skarsgard

5 May 2016 7:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — Volker Schlondorff, who won Cannes’ Palme d’Or and an Oscar for “The Tin Drum,” has started shooting “Return to Montauk” in New York. Pic stars Stellan Skarsgard and Nina Hoss, and the screenplay is by “Brooklyn’s” Colm Toibin and Schlondorff. Gaumont is handling international sales in Cannes, and Wild Bunch Germany will release the film theatrically in Germany.

The film centers on the writer Max Zorn (Skarsgard), who comes to New York for the release of his book. His young wife Clara (Susanne Wolff) goes ahead to work on the U.S. release. In his novel, Max writes about the failure of love in this city 17 years ago. Almost by chance he meets Rebecca (Hoss). She is now a successful lawyer, originally from East Germany, and in New York for 20 years. They decide to spend a weekend together in Montauk, a fishing port on Long Island.

Jacques Audiard’s films ranked from worst to best

8 April 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Matthew Lee ranks Jacques Audiard’s films from worst to best…

To coincide with the release of Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan [read our review here], the winner of last year’s Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival, we’re looking through this auteur’s back catalogue. With consistent critical acclaim, we’re here to see if such receptions still hold up, and to see if certain films still warrant such appraisal. We may also be able to detect recurring themes, motifs, and visual traits, and to see if they’ve matured in later projects, or have diminished in time. In short, we’re ranking the man’s films from worst to best.

6 – The Beat That My Heart Skipped

Jacques Audiard firmly roots himself in the crime underworld of Paris with his follow-up to Read My Lips. Thuggish broker Thomas Seyr (Romain Duris) involves himself in unscrupulous activity to assist in his real estate enterprise. »

Our countdown of the 100 best films of the 21st century continues. This is Part 2 #75 through 51.

Click here for Part 1 (#100-76)!

The first decade and a half of the 21st century has brought a lot of changes to the landscape of film. The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn’t stopped films from breaking box office records, including having films gross »
