It’s not quite clear why anyone should go and see them [German films]. They’re all losers. Someone like Til Schweiger, who start from scratch, seems to be the only figure that manages to dominate cinema, strangely enough. We’ll have to see if we can be interesting enough to do that. But the Berlin School will continue to scare people away from the movie theaters. Cinema needs to provide a colorful mix. That is the only way it can survive.
