Volker Schlöndorff is the most European of German filmmakers. From The Tin Drum to Diplomacy, this film explores the life and work of a border-crossing artist who, by leaving his country, gained the perspective to portray it better than anyone else. A personal quest that also provides a unique point of view on both German and European history, and a reflection on national identity and its gray areas.
