It also encouraged me to press on with my desire to learn German. The ride must be redeemed by the acquisition of actual language skills. If I take to it with gusto and seriousness that should help me along nicely. The announcement that made me change my route was this: Christoph Waltz will be presenting a screening of Inglourious Basterds at the Zurich Film Festival on 26 September. Those of you who know me best will know I have an … interest in Christoph and his career. I heard him say these things at a time when I was feeling stuck in the middle of my life, stagnated, and uncertain how, or if, I would manage to change.
Through him and his story I was reminded that things can and do change. More on Zurich in a moment. The other day I looked at my diary and realised I had miscalculated the number of days I have been in the Schengen Zone and I was at risk of being flagged for overstaying. The Schengen Zone is the area of Europe with, generally, no passport controls at the borders. The UK and Ireland are outside the zone. More on my solution in a moment. Instead of finishing my European ride in Berlin I will finish it in Zurich. From there I will take the train to Berlin, spend a few days there, and then fly to Ireland for a week before flying back to Berlin to catch my flight to Chicago.
My curiosity led me to seeing in him a simple truth of which sorely needed to be reminded. Beyond Christoph becoming a sort of phoenix-like symbol for me, and finding simple joy in watching him do what he does so well — I also found him to be an interesting, self-aware, erudite, funny man. Here is the announcement from earlier this week.
I have been remiss in my study of German and remiss in attending to this blog.
Someday I will return to it. Hanukkah — the Jewish festival of lights — has ended. Read on, bitte. Hat-tip to Laura for her willingness to join me for a film neither of us would see but for my, um, committed interest in the career of Christoph Waltz.
Wir sich trefft trinken von Hoffnung Sangria machen der Film gut. Ich erwarte der Film machen mich an wenig lachen und kriechen ein auch. Es ist gut es ist ein Kurzfilm. Dies sind nicht die Menschen, die ich in der Regel Filme sehen mit. Sie lachen und sie haben eine Zeit gut. Ich denke um warum sie lachen und warum ich bin nicht lachen. Die Drehbuch hat etwa gute Augenblick und viele schlechte Augenblick.
Die Geschichte ist unglaublich. Further afield was t he unimaginable horror that befell those students in that school in Pakistan. This German-Austrian film tells the story of a group of skilled men selected from amongst those held in Nazi concentration camps to work on a counterfeiting scheme.
While the film had English subtitles I was pretty happy with the amount of German dialogue I caught as it went past. Despite finding some of the camera work weirdly TV-ish and the music occasionally odd, I really enjoyed the film. I especially liked the work of the actor in the lead role of Sally Sorowitsch Karl Markovics. He was really quite good and he has a fantastic face. How have these German-speaking movie makers depicted this time and place? On the one hand a certain amount of the humiliation, degradation, dehumanization, and mass murder of Jews is … seen a little and referred to more.
The group selected to work on the counterfeiting operations are treated comparatively well with soft beds, clean sheets, access to proper food and hygiene — all of which they find amazing. I was left with an impression of looking at the Holocaust — not quite out of the corner of an eye, but not directly either. This group of Jews, while interred and manipulated, were spared the worst of the Holocaust. What was going on elsewhere is glimpsed and referred to but not brought front and centre.
I suspect this is easier viewing for the descendants of Nazi-era German speakers. If any readers can recommend other German-language films which look more directly at the Holocaust than this — please let me know by commenting on this post. This depiction, in The Counterfeiters , is not nothing.

Here, in Australia, there are relatively few films that have directly confronted the treatment of Aboriginal Australians and in the US there are relatively few that have directly confronted slavery. This, this is a thing I do — I like to get lost in a project, in an obsession, and follow it through to some sort of conclusion or fulfilment or just to a point where I weary of it and set it aside. I can set it aside when busy with other aspects of life and then return to it when I can.
More of what society tells us we should want — titles, careers, cash, etc. I find a simple joy in losing myself in a state of blissful obsession and in the sort of ridiculous and fanciful projects that are and end in themselves. Where will Learning German with Christoph Walt z lead me? Will I gain some actual fluency?

I am a writer — so I shall write. If you should read what I write all the better but for now I choose not to worry about you or where this goes or where it will take me — but to simply enjoy the journey, to enjoy the light this little flame throws into my life. We meet to drink sangria hoping to making the film better.
I expect the film to be a little funny and also cringeworthy. It is good that it is a short film. These are not the people I usually see movies with. They laugh and have a good time. The script has some good moments and many bad moments.
The acting is fine, Christoph fun in his few scenes. The story is unbelievable. I do not know if that makes make acting harder or easier. Time for more translation! I thought their take on the story might be a little different from other sources so I chose their article to translate. Nach dem Studium spielte Christoph Waltz schon bald in Theaterproduktionen im ganzen deutschsprachigen Raum. Daneben war er auch in zahlreichen TVProduktionen der damaligen Zeit vertreten.
