  • “Hans-Beimler Caddesindeki Devlet İstatistik Ofisi her şeyi sayıyor, her şeyi biliyor. Yılda kaç çift ayakkabı aldığımı: 2,3. Yılda kaç kitap okuduğumu: 3,2 ve her yıl kaç öğrencinin 5,0 not ortalamasıyla liseyi bitirdiğini: 6347. Fakat bir şeyi saymıyorlar, belki de bu bürokratları bile üzdüğü için. O da intihar. Beimler Caddesini arayıp Elbe ile Oder Nehirleri ve Baltık Denizi ile Ore Dağları arasında umutsuzluğun kaç kişiyi ölüme sürüklediğini soracak olursanız sayı kahinimiz susar ve muhtemelen adınızı not eder, Devlet Güvenliği için. Ülkemizin güvenliğini ve mutluluğunu temin eden gri adamlar için. 1977′de ülkemiz intihar edenleri saymayı bıraktı. ‘Kendini öldürenler’ diye adlandırdılar onları. Oysaki bu eylemin cinayetle hiç alakası yok. Bu ne kana susamışlık ne de tutkudur, sadece ölümdür. Bütün umutların ölmesidir.”

  • — Ona ihtiyacın yok! Burada kal. Gitme onun yanına.

    — Yok mu? Ona muhtaç değil miyim? Bütün bu sisteme muhtaç değil miyim? Peki ya sen? Öyleyse sen de değilsin. Ya da daha az muhtaçsın. Ama sen de onlarla düşüp kalkmıyor musun? Neden o zaman? Çünkü seni de mahvedebilirler. Yeteneğine ve inancına rağmen. Çünkü hangi oyunun oynanacağını kimin oynayıp kimin yöneteceğini onlar belirliyorlar. Sonunun Jerska gibi olmasını istemiyorsun. Ben de istemiyorum! Bu yüzden de şimdi gidiyorum.

    — Haklı olduğun çok şey var. Benim de değiştirmek istediğim çok şey. Ama lütfen… Yalvarırım… Gitme.

  • Never Look Away    [trailer]

    German artist Kurt Barnert has escaped East Germany and now lives in West Germany, but is tormented by his childhood under the Nazis and the GDR-regime.

    It tries to be profoundly epic, covering a lot of historical ground. But there are so many soap-opera like story elements, it often feels more like Hollywood than international arthouse. Which may explain why, at least in my impression, reviews in Germany were much more negative than international ones.

    It’s not boring, and it’s for example interesting to see how different regimes use different arguments with the same goal of discrediting art and artists. But many things are often unnecessarily spelled out and the score regularly feels annoying.

    The conversation at the beginning between the aunt and her young nephew sounded as fake as the bus ride looked.

  • The first thing you should know about “Never Look Away,” Germany’s Oscar-nominated film (for both Best Foreign Language Film and Best Cinematography, though it won neither), is that it has a pretty wide berth.

    That includes both run-time (clocking in at about 188 minutes) and subject matter, tracing the lives of two men and their families through the end of World War II in Germany: Carl Seeband, a Nazi doctor who sterilized women against their will for the Reich; the other, Kurt Barnert, the nephew of one of those women – and, eventually, the artist boyfriend of the doctor’s daughter Ellie.

    Their stories weave and wind around each other, with plenty of the three-plus hours spent on how the war shaped their respective prospects.

    The result is sumptuous — as Kurt rebels against the socialist values that guide his budding art career, and Carl tries to outrun his past without abandoning his beliefs, writer/director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck pits art and history against each other in an earnest sentimental way, building a world around these two men’s approaches.

    Though the story’s shadow looms large, it’s more like a Chuck Close painting, obsessed with the small points that make up the arm of history. Kurt’s family chuckles over how oppressive the Third Reich’s standards are as they attempt to visit his committed aunt; we meet characters who were merely referenced as they are bombed in Dresden. “Never Look Away” traces just why people defected to West Germany, even if (on paper) they were doing just fine in the East. It is a grand saga, but on a small scale.

    Often times characters repeat what feels like the touchstone for the film, with various applications: “What is true is beautiful.” And yet, by using too wide a brush, it feels too tidy, too kitsch by the end (without even getting into how the alleged inspiration for the film, Gerhard Richter told The New Yorker that it was an “abuse and grossly” distoriting of his biography).

    What was building to a face-off between the two men, with plenty of explorative fun of avant-garde art movements, becomes an exercise in syrupy-sweet resolution, without providing much resolution beyond achievement anyway. Put another way, what’s beautiful isn’t always true, and it sometimes seems as if “Never Look Away” doesn’t know the difference.

    This is not to say that the movie isn’t rewarding in some way; Caleb Deschanel’s cinematography nom is well-earned, as he uses shots to explore how art and the creation of image fall together and apart. Tom Schilling, Sebastian Koch, and Paula Beer often embody the aching loneliness of their roles, while Saskia Rosendahl as Kurt’s aunt Elizabeth is hypnotically good.

    But there’s a sense that either the story stumbled into what poignancy “Never Look Away” does have, or else it just takes the easy way out of attempting to make grand pronouncements. With the movie, Donnersmarck touches on something true about how biography and history swirl around to make inspiration in a way that is both alchemic and ineffable. In the end, however, is deeply meditative but without anything truly to say.

  • I just watched Werk Ohne Autor and fuck it was good and I honestly don’t know if I want Sebastian Koch to never act in anything ever again because he will never be able to top that performance or to be playing all the roles in everything from now on.
