Otto Sander @ 70

Happy 70th to "The Voice," a legendary stage presence in Germany best known to international audiences as Cassiel in Wings of Desire and Kapitänleutnant Philipp Thomsen in Das Boot. Tributes in the German papers: Irene Bazinger (Berliner Zeitung), Hilmar Klute (Süddeutsche Zeitung), Gerhard Stadelmaier (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) and Peter von Becker (Tagesspiegel). And Peter Zander talks with Sander for Die Welt.

Wow nice picture!! But that statue more looks like a maandhoroscoop to me lol!
“Faraway, So Close!” was his film and I only wish that film was better. But his presence in “Wings of Desire” is perhaps the strongest in the film even though it’s probably Ganz’s film. An angel in crisis. I always think of that image of him at the NIck Cave concert as light fragments off his despaired face. No one broods quite like Otto Sander.
