A Pilgrimage to Hamburg- The Film

Here’s the second part of my encounter with my favourite film
director in Hamburg! (click 
here for the first part)

It was dark and there were about 20 people in. And there,
standing behind the last row, smiling, was the man himself. I made my way to
him and managed to blabber ‘Made it… from Twitter…’. He remembered and
wondered if I had actually paid 200 euros to get here. ‘Hitchhiked’ I said. How
I manage to hold my composure is still a miracle to me. My brain was having
mini explosions inside and I somehow managed to keep a straight face (not even
sure about that).

He
gave a short introduction before the movie began and warned us ‘not to try and
understand the film if it gets complicated because we won’t’. I just smiled
like a madman. The film was 5 hours and 20 minutes long split into 2 halves.
What a film. WHAT AN AMAZING FILM! My brain was blown to bits. I’m still trying
to pick up the pieces. It was an assault on all senses. I won’t say more. But
seriously. Guys, watch it. WATCH IT!

During
the break I managed to grab hold of him. One picture. Managed to blurt out
again ‘It’s an honor… great film… thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU’. He was
amazingly humble and thanked me for making it all the way there. Damn. Also
happened to mention that Nishant (my friend and writing partner) would
one day in a couple of years knock on his door with a bag of scripts perhaps!

Movie over,  spasms in
brain. He leaves, I thank him again. I have that perpetual ‘idiot’ smile on. He
disappears with Fatih Akin. Yep, he was
there too!

Zainab,
you’re my unsung hero and the greatest sister. It wouldn’t have been possible
without your help. Thank you. I love you.

And
Nishant, sorry you couldn’t make it. I know we wanted to watch GoW together.
But unfortunately you were in Holland fighting something called Master’s
Thesis. But you know, one day we will maybe be making our own films!

And
now, I gotta find a way to get back to Heidelberg. Damn, the sun is coming out.

Gotta
go take some pictures! (and maybe wake up)

Tot
Later
J
