Mein liebster Feind

Deutschland, Großbritannien, 1999
Dokumentarfilm

Darum geht's

In dieser persönlichen Dokumentation erinnert sich der Regisseur an die Höhen und Tiefen und an die hitzigen Auseinandersetzungen mit Kinski. Dazu kehrt er in die Münchner Wohnung zurück, wo sie sich zum ersten Mal trafen und besucht jene Orte, an denen sie ihre Filme machten.

Mein liebster Feind Regie Werner Herzog

Kritiker-Rezensionen

The film ends with a shot of Kinski delicately playing with a butterfly that crawls over his fingers and flits about his face. The first time watching this movie, this scene clashes with the portrait of the actor as a wild man, but gradually one comes to see it not as a contrast to Kinski’s volatility but a more complete rendering of it. It’s a fittingly irresolute coda from a man still grappling how he could have spent so much of his life around such a person, and why he still misses him.

What may be admirable in an exposé like My Best Fiend is that it shows the undertakings to be as dangerous as they were Herculean. In fact, the film improbably risks identification with Kinski over Herzog.
