Christoph Hochhäusler

Biography

Filmography

German director born in Munich in 1972.

Christoph Hochhäusler is one of the key directors of the so-called « Berlin School » among Christian Petzold, Angela Shanelec and Ulrich Köhler. He first studied architecture before attending the HFF film school in Munich. He began by making three short films and was the founding publisher of the German film magazine, Revolver. The magazine regularly features interviews with the Berlin Schoolfilmmakers as well as an older generation of German and international directors  regarded as raw models. Hence, the magazine participated in the renewal of German cinema. In 2003, Christoph Hochhäusler made his first feature length film, Milchwald. He followed up with Falscher Bekenner, Unter dir die stadt, Die Lügen der Sieger. Both his second and third feature were selected at the Un certain regard section of the Cannes Film Festival.

The director on The Earrings of Madame de…

What I like is that everyone is part of Danielle Darrieux's lie.

Close
The director on L'Eclisse

What I find striking is how the film explores the formal possibilities of cinema. Antonioni increases the possibility of cinema.

The director on The Magnificent Ambersons

The characters are very much alive, and tragic in a way that is very rare in the american cinema
