, has started shooting in Munich on his new film, Das Blaue vom Himmel ("The Blue of the Sky"), which is set between the 1930s and 1990s.

The film centres on Marga (Hannelore Elsner), who is starting to lose her memory of the present while older recollections come back to life, and her daughter Sofia (Juliane Köhler).
