Berlin — Danish director Lars von Trier may be persona non grata in Cannes, but he was clearly missed at the press conference for “Nymphomaniac – Volume 1″ at the Berlin Film Festival on Sunday.

But the maverick helmer was in the German capital, and appeared at the film’s photo call in a black T-shirt with the Cannes logo on it, and the words “Persona non grata” emblazoned beneath.

During the press conference, the helmer’s modus operandi was very much the focus of all the actors’ comments.

“I’ve never been on a film where the director was so in command of every department,” said Christian Slater. “He has such soul.. a very kind heart.”

“It is not challenging at all to work with him,” said von Trier regular Stellan Skarsgard. “It is easier, and more fun.”
