"Talking about Good Bye Lenin [+see also:
interview: Wolfgang Becker
film profile], I must admit that I don't remember a lot of that time.
I had to get in contact with people from former East-Germany, that was the most important thing: the time of preparation. And so it was like a history-lesson for me because during history-lessons in school I used to sleep and so I had to work on that.
In Europe there should be more co-productions, but I think it is getting better. It is always difficult for an actor to get good scripts, you are always waiting for a good one. It is good to be known in other countries, so that the possibility to get a good script is bigger. That's my motto for today and tonight: 'Alles wird gut' - 'Everything will be fine'".
