VOLKER SCHLÖNDORFF

Volker Schlöndorff ist wohl einer der bedeutendsten und international erfolgreichsten deutschen Filmemacher. Er besitzt eine ausgeprägte Vorliebe für Verfilmungen deutscher und internationaler Literaturklassiker. Mit Begeisterung widmet er sich Werken, die als unverfilmbar gelten und macht sie dem breiten Publikum zugänglich und verständlich. Doch auch gesellschaftskritische Arbeiten gehören zu seinem Repertoire. Alle seine Filme sind sehr anspruchsvoll und gleichzeitig unterhaltend.

Für die Adaption des Grass-Stücks Die Blechtrommel hat Volker Schlöndorff einen Oscar erhalten, für sein aktuelles Werk Diplomatie den César.

1964 entstand Schlöndorffs erster eigener Film – Der junge Törless. Es folgen viele weitere Filme wie ein munterer, boshafter Genre-Mix in Mord und Totschlag oder ein Ausflug in das Genre des Heimatfilms mit Der plötzliche Reichtum der armen Leute von Kombach sowie eine westernartige Adaption mit Michael Kohlhaas – Der Rebell oder auch eine Emanzipationsgeschichte wie in Strohfeuer oder Die verlorene Ehre der Katharina Blum zusammen mit Margarethe von Trotta.
