Biography

Rudolf Thome was born in Wallau/Lahn in 1939 and studied German, Philosophy and History in Munich and Bonn. He began writing film reviews in 1962 for various newspapers and magazines. In 1964, he collaborated with Max Zihlmann and Klaus Lemke on his first short film, "Die Versöhnung". He then became managing director of the Munich Film Critics' Club in 1965 and founded his own production company, Moana-Film, in 1977. He received the 2nd placeGuild Award in the category Best German Film for "Berlin Chamissoplatz" in 1981, and the International Film Critics' Award in Montreal in 1989 for his film "Der Philosoph" ("The Philosopher"). His film "Paradiso" (1999) won a Silver Bear at Berlin in 2000.

His other films include: "Stella" (1966), "Rote Sonne" ("Red Sun", 1969), "Supergirl" (1971), "Made in Germany and USA"  (1974), "Liebe auf den ersten Blick" ("Love at first sight", 1991), "Das Geheimnis" (1995), "Just married" (1998), "Venus Talking" (2001), "Rot und blau" ("Red and Blue", 2002), "Frau fährt, Mann schläft" ("Woman Driving, Man Sleeping", 2003), "Du hast gesagt, dass du mich liebst" ("You Told Me You Love Me", 2005), "Rauchzeichen" ("Smoke Signs", 2006), "Das Sichtbare und das Unsichtbare" ("The Visible and the Invisible", 2007), "Pink" (2008), "Das rote Zimmer" ("The Red Room", 2010) and "Ins Blaue" ("Into the Blue", 2012).

After some years of relative recluse, Thome returned to the screen as the subject of the documentary "Rudolf Thome - Überall Blumen" ("Rudolf Thome - Flowers Everywhere"), which premiered in the Forum section of the 2016 Berlin IFF. Directed by Serpil Turhan, who worked as an actor and assistant director for Thome, the film presents a very personal portrait of the filmmaker.
