Tom Twyker; A Good Follower Of a Cinema master


When Krystow Kislivski Died , I Thought that a part of cinema will be lost ... but after years , when i saw "heaven" - written by him & directed with German modern director ; Tom Twyker - I became so happy About this masterpiece . i believe that every script that has been written by kislovski should be directed by him , too . but Tom Twyker had an amazing job with his script ...
After that Twyker made Run Lola,Run , A Movie that had "Blind Chance" cinematic structure. and Twyker described himself as a good pupil of master kislovski . all twyker movies has the modern space of kislovski's .

so untrue, Princess and the Warrior is fantastic, his section in Paris Je'teme or whatever was the best of all of them and Perfume is one of my all time favorite movies. I actually though Heaven was one of his lesser triumphs.

Very much agree, Princess and the Warrior and Perfume are his best so far. Perfume just blows me away, but it is a film you have to be in the mood for. Like you, I also found Heaven to be disappointing. Twyker is very talented, but he has a very distinctive voice, I think, and it doesn't blend well with Kieslowski's writing. I think whoever takes that on should have a very subtle touch, and subtly is not one of Twker's talents.

My picks to handle Kieslowski's posthumous work: Hanake. White Ribbon had that sort of brilliant understated subtly to it, where a simple look or gesture without a word can convey or elaborate *so* much. But Haneke lacks levity, he might only see the darker side of Kieslowski.

Terrance Malick (Days of Heaven, Thin Red Line) would be superb, but he has his own incredible vision to pursue and I'd rather he continue doing that as long as he can rather than chase the old ghosts of script that others left behind.

The princess & the warrior is his best IMO.

"The Princess and the Warrior" is a brilliant film. It demands more of the viewer than "Run Lola Run," but ultimately I found it even more rewarding. Excellent director, that Tykwer, and he's only 45.
