Oscar winning director Volker Schlöndorff has made a welcome appearance at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.
His romantic drama ““Return to Montauk”“:http://www.iftn.ie/news/?act1=record&only=1&aid=73&rid=4290126&tpl=archnews&force=1 staring Stellan Skarsgard and Nina Hoss has been described by some as his best for a long time.
It is about a writer in his early sixties who travels to New York to launch his new book, a story of failed love. While he is there tries to reunite with a lover he met many years before. Schlöndorff’s script is co-written with Colm Tóibín and based on the novel by Swiss writer Max Frisch.
