Hi All,

 

Bruno Getz, I think it is - 'Knife To the Head' where he is shot in the head when police go to the place his ex-wife work and the police say he attacked them.

Good on us fellas - a veritable Bruno Ganz tribute. Such an actor he was too....

Being a bit younger myself I know him from outstanding Der Himmel über Berlin (Wings of Desire) (1987), aforementioned The Last Days of Chez Nous (1992) and a heavy film about Hitlers last days "Downfall" where he masterfully embodied the deluded/compulsive/psychopathic dictator, a role he was understandably very reluctant to take on, but one that rings so true it feels like freakin doco.

Fine actor Bruno. Was brilliant in Downfall.

Another fine German actor..or is he Austrian or Swiss.

Correct answer. Ganz of course not Getz. That's a car named after a sax player :) Well done JJ.

That's Klaus Maria Brandauer and he's Austrian. A scene from Mephisto.

Mads is good with Willem Dafoe as Vincent Van Gogh  in At Eternity's Gate

also if you can find it, he's hilarious in Men and Chicken

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3877674/

a very black comedy indeed!

Correct. A very good movie. Mikkelsen a great actor. 

He's just so damn good alright--

Ha!--yes I just watched him in Polar--a slow burn Gore fest that lifted itself  out of the B Flick mode with him and the surprise

twist at the end.

Recommended for a quirky nights viewing😎!

Klaus Maria Brandauer was and is a very fine actor as well as director and can speak of the art of acting very eloquently.

 

The Istvan Szabo's trilogy that starred KMB which includededMephisto and the forgotten Hannusen as well as Colonel Redl are supposed to be re-uniting for another film in the not too distant future.

 

Talk about screen presence also seen as the Bond villain and in Out of Africa, a real scene stealer.

 

My favourite scene from Mephisto where the language dances on his lips with such ease and dexterity and the wink at the end .

Heavens!-- I saw this in the EU in the late 70's in Spanish --no Subs !--but it was captivating flick--wonder if it is on any sites now?

 

Anyway--Spirit of the Beehive

 

Good one Mr BuZZ!😋
