From the first moment I watched this film I wanted to do the restoration and share it with others. I'm so happy that this happened and that we are now able to present it in great shape and with the original music.
Such a timeless classic!
The New German cinema, and in particular Herzog's work, reaffirmed my wish to do work related to cinema from the moment I discovered them as a teenager.

I believe Hanna Schimek should also be credited as co-director.
Practically any film made by Deutsch is a reflection of a brilliant cinematic mind.
Cunegonde reçoit sa famille
Early European slapstick deserves much more recognition than it normally receives.
As ten films is a very restricted number, I tried to include the films that somehow made an impact on me when I first watched them.
Of course, the more one thinks, the more titles come to mind, but I wanted to provide a simple recommendation list for someone like me who doesn't necessarily see a film as a work of art, but who's intrigued by the historical, entertainment and economic contexts of cinema.
If I were given more choices I'd like to include more documentaries, trick films or even films defying any categorisation.
