Kohlhaas Or The Proportionality Of Means
The plan: Heroes, battles, blood and tears, love, hate and war. An epic.
The reality: Since the budget has been drastically reduced or cut entirely and because I realize the current financing will not allow me to make an uncompromising film on the intended scale, I have decided to proceed without the millions necessary for such an endeavor and, in doing so, have set myself free. My film will live from the imaginations of the spectators and the powers of persuasion of the filmmakers and the cast. Trees are giants, cows are horses and a handful of extras an army of 5000 men.
