Stan Neumann – Austerlitz (2015)

Film adaptation of W.G. Sebald’s novel “Austerlitz”, directed by the Czech-born French director Stan Neumann and starring Denis Lavant as Jacques Austerlitz, the film is described as “not so much a filmed book as it is a film about a book, breaking down the walls that divide documentary and fiction, just as Sebald blurred the lines between the two in his writing”.

I opened a book: Austerlitz by W.G. Sebald.
In it I met Jacques Austerlitz, an amateur photographer, a compulsive collector of all kinds of images, an art historian with unusual ideas and an obsession with 19th-century monumental architecture.
I followed him, page by page, from Antwerp to London, from Paris to Marienbad, from Prague to the Terezin Ghetto, in search of the buried childhood secret.
I looked for a path through the maze of his story, his words and his misleading images, through this tale made from snatches of real life –
guided by the utterly absurd conviction that this book had been written just for me.
